I've got a 65k-ish 04 OEM set you can have if you take that route.

Finally the shocks are fitted. I told my mechanic to set them at max ride height didn't realise the fronts would be higher than stock and the rears slightly lower. Will post pictures as soon as I can but hopefully won't be too much hassle sorting them, although for the roads these days it's better having a jacked up car. Anyway the ride quality is so much better than before. Now to sort the ride height and then see if the alignment is still in reasonable spec.

Get the geo sorted after,must be a mile out from spec !! and may be a danger to drive.

It didn't feel dangerous. And comparing the 2 images one from when it had the stock suspension and one from now I don't think the difference is that great. I will have the alignment checked though to make sure it's OK.

Parallel or giving some rake is to be considered also

So measured the heights from floor to wheel arch
Stock from another thread are
655 mm front and 663 rear

Mine are
660 front and 655 rear
So hopefully with drop the front a bit and then sort alignment
