Fully adjustable shock absorbers and pigtail springs. Performance5 has matched bespoke springs to Protech aluminium bodied lightweight shock absorbers. Protech shocks are reputedly a version of the Nitron shock absorber. The kit came completed with NB shock mounts, bushes, Superpro bumpstops and shock gaiters. Cost about $1000.
Had them on for about 2000 miles so far, replacing an Apex'i shock-FM Spring combination. I have them set to about 330mm height front and rear, and so far, set to 7 out of the 15 compression setting. So far; breath taking. The springs feel super firm (there is hardly any give if you try and bounce the trunk), but the ride on rutted back roads feels smooth, and the car feels incredibly well controlled. The Protech shock is a real quality product; clear expoxy to protect the shock body from corrosion, and a metal adjuster knob with very positive adjustment clicks, much better than the plastic adjuster on the Apex'i shock. Very happy with them.
