Clubman Shock absorbers.

Post by wakaday on Fri Dec 09, 2016 1:08 pm

I need a new set. I think it still has the originals on it.
I have come over from a lowered Panel Van conversion so i am enjoying the wallowing in corners style but it sure needs tightening up a bit now.
What are the best aftermarket brands for the Clubman? Do they run heavier items than standard? I have no plans to go back down the Big wheels &  lowered suspension route. Quite enjoy having suspension that doesnt rattle my spine and Teeth on every bump.
I had Sachs HD super touring on the last Van but not sure if they are set up for lowered Vehicles. Also had a look at Meyle but cant see any info if they are suitable for heavier Vans.

Old thread revisited.
I fitted a set of Meyle HD items. Nice and big and chunky. They came within 3 days form Ebay Germany. Well impressed. The original shocks that came of were Sachs/Boge items with a VW stamp embossed into them. 
Much tighter ride now.

wakaday & dandywarhol, thanks again for your assistance and advice re. shocks for my clubman.I think might go for an upgrade  of shock absorbers allround.The vehicle seems OK,but an upgrade might improve the ride and road holding.This Forum is so useful,thanks.
