Dampers (shock absorbers)

Post by Cliff4WD » Mon Oct 28, 2019 2:15 pm

I've removed my front leaf springs and dampers, also steering damper. They all look to be past their sell by as they compress easily and are veeery sloooow to recover. So, I thought I'd seek recommendations for good replacements. It had Munroe Gas Magnums on it but having never driven the vehicle, I have no clue what they were like when good.

Thanks

I just recently replaced mine with Monroe. The direct equivalent to RTC4483. I think they are probably too soft, so I would go for harder shocks than standard. Most miles are onroad these days and usually about 300km at a trot at around 90-95km/hr.
