It's time to upgrade my suspension on my PH1 306gti
After reading alot on this forum and finding lots of info on these cars i still have a question...
I'm going to upgrade my suspension and want to do the following:
-Eibach pro kit -30mm with Bilstein shocks
-New oem Partner p-bushes 3523 83
-New oem rear mounts + xsara 21mm TB + 205 bilstein gr-n shocks B46-1038 and maybe a hybrid anti roll bar
Now for my question should i go for the B6 or B8 at the front due to the shorter shaft length?
I also have a Citroen ax gt with a saxo16v engine which used to run the Eibach -30 pro springs an B6 shocks which was great handling wise, but a bit to high. After upgrading the front to AST coilovers with shorter shafts it was rubbisch/s**t!(quality as well>poor top spring holder and leaking after 2500km and 2 times broken spring adjustment rings!)
Because the rebound stroke was so small (jacking the car up 2cm the wheel became airborn!) This was a dangerous drive at bumpy roads with high speeds and resulting in wheel spin! > I don't want this for the 306!
So should i go for the B6 or B8? and how much shorter is the shaft between these 2? I know the damping rate should be equal. My other thinking is to buy the xsara B6 as they run 20/25mm lower and probably have a little shorter shaft then the 306 B6 and therfore less chance of bottoming out the shock? (damping rate also firmer due more weight?)
Please share your opinions on this!
Thanks in advance
