could it be possible to put coilovers on an opel gt and where could i get them. sorry for talking crap to baz. he was basicly telling me im stupid. i just got an idea to put coilovers on my gt.
In all probability, those VW shocks will be about 3 times too stiff for your GT. I've seen the damping rates on off-road VW Beetles, and they are VERY stiff. Keep in mind the VW must support the weight of the engine out back....
For example, item #B46-0930 has a damping rating of 135 in compression and 345 in rebound (Bilstein's metric rating system BTW). A GT rear shock probably needs closer to 50 or 60 in compression, and 80-100 in rebound for a stiff road car. Other wise you'll be overdampened and it will ride and handle like s**t!

Sorry to hear of this Baz, hope it's not too serious. My mom's been fighting since last year, and I surely understand the full range of emotion one goes through during times like this. Get well.baz said:i was in a s**T mood and took it out on you (hate talking to cancer docs when its about me)
