hey all
i desperatly need new shocks on my 93 phaze. wonderin what the opinions are on replacing with oem or some kinda after market like kimpex. could i get some kinda coilovers? do you hafta get gas shocks recharged?
also im 260lbs so id like to have somthin that will take abuse, it doesnt seem like the oem ones will take it but...i dunno
should i have the preload on the springs turned up or down cuz of my wieght?

I have a 92 Phazer St ..I weight the same as you...I went through 2 Kimpex shocks in one season I put a RYDE FX shock on the back with new OEM springs and it's a huge difference..Even the ride is much better the shock has held up very well..It's been 3 years on tht shock now ...I paid around $150 Canadian for it...Well worth the money you won't be dissapointed...For the front I replaced the shocks with the Kimpex and they are holding up....You don't have to many options for the front shocks .....

thanks fer the reply
im glad someone as big as me has been through this becuase i was ready to hafta go through trial and error to see what worked and i wwouldnt be impressed.
wow 2 kimpex in one season? thats ridiculous. where did you get the ryde fx shock? did you notice much difference when you replaced the two front shocks?
