    You will need spring clamps but they are fairly easy to swap mate they will work on standard shocks it just shortens there life span a bit

    Cheers Niall

    Ive got spring clamps mate from when i was doing a rear top mount just when i got the car mate, tho that didnt go well lol

    Got standard rear shocks, springs and mounts coming as well so should feel better with the front down as well. The rear shocks look like originals

    Thats fine ill go order the inserts then
