Hello - Just an intro - Aventura black '06 model. Already scratched to hell. :)

Replaced shox with AVO (UK) ones - Mahooooosive improvement at the rear - for a hundred squid, its well worth it!


I have been on the nissan frontier (USA) forums - and have a the nissan navara (and pathfinder and <shhh> almera :roll: ) parts and service CDs online... I dont really want to post the link as it will overload my server - but maybe someone else wants to host it?

Hi Guy.
What type of improvement did you get from the shocks?
Do you carry heavy loads and has the ride quality improved??

Sorry for all the questions but I am interested in improving the ride quality on mine which I have somewhat compromised by fitting 20" wheels :wink:

The improvement I got was that the ride was more ---- supple. Little bumps dissapeard, and big ones where less, shocky. Instead of a 'crack' as you go over a speed bump at 40mph, it becomes a 'thump'

Its very difficult to describe.

I have carried:-

A film crew (3 people) and camera.

Most of my garage (a lot of steel)

empty.

Another film crew whilst towing a Primera (skanky) in hilly bumpy cornwall.

With the film crew, they have the damping set on 1 - 3. With the garage full of [email protected] it was set on 8 (of 12 or 15). With it empty, its set on 5. On this setting it feels SO much more planted, and stable through high speed corners, and I can drive it with more confidence through the country lanes.

and my spine hasnt exited the top of my head....

105 quid, inc VAT but not delivery iirc

I drove to the factory, they lent me the spanners to take mine off, dyno'd the (original) shock, proclaimed it '****' and 'ar$e about face' and 'we would never build a shock like that, its all wrong'. They then made me a custom shock, and I fitted it, I went for a test drive, came back and gladly paid up!

i fitted the 2 rear Pro Comp shocks from my D22 to my D40 before upgrading the rear springs, made it handle a lot better although ride was stiffer.
