Hi Everyone, So it seems Nitron have sent a few people the wrong boxes. Turbo to NA owners and vice versa... We have queried this with Nitron and it seems that despite the labelling and the fact they are separate orderable items on their website that the Turbo and NA Street Series are actually identical so it doesn't matter if the box the labelled one way or the other, they are all the same. Nitron have verified that they are happy to field any queries if people are unsure. Ed, not sure what concern the query above is related to but Nitron are nice helpful guys. Just get in touch with them and ask them directly about anything you are concerned about. If people would prefer us to field queries with Nitron on their behalf then we will happily do so, just pm or email us.

So nitron go to the trouble of having turbo or n/a shocks seperate on their website but there is no difference between the two once there is a cock up with the orders, funny that.

I thought that too (I got sent turbo dampers for my NA) but it seems to have always been the case: http://www.vx220.org...s-spring-rates/

I had a cold evening on the floor of the garage last night fitting & tweaking these, the rears are very straight forward - took about 15 minutes a side to swap, the fronts require the mounts to be changed which is a little more tricky - the front passenger side was reasonably accessible, didn't need to take the arch liner out to do it, the drivers side was a bit of a pain - the ABS pump sits on the top of the mount & the bolts on mine we're predictably a bit rusted, small & hard to get at - need to get a spanner in the small space on top of the mount but under the pump to hold the other end of the bolt, likewise the back of the two bolts holding the mount on were awkward to get at - the top one especially, I had to remove the arch liner on the drivers side.  

 

I have one of these: http://www.makitauk....driver-lxt.html which was very useful for getting some of the bolts in & out, not masses of torque, but for getting the new bolts in & 90% done it was a good time saver.

 

However, what a difference!  The car doesn't crash about anymore - not wallowy at all & still stiff in the corners, but handles Hampshire's lumpy roads far better.  Obviously if I had the originals refurbished it would make a difference, but I'm very happy with the result, as an aside it looks like mine has had some work in the past, one shock had had the original flaky collar replaced with a metal one, the rest originals.

Just to add to the above. I struggled to undo the nuts on the bottom of the abs rubber bushes. (nut would turn but wasn't coming off - bolt wasn't moving)

 

Solution was use a pair of mole grips to hold the rubber and what ever mount it contains and this enabled me to get the nuts off.

 

Hope this helps!
