Spax shocks are widely available, ask the usual Lotus Parts suspects what fits your year. But frankly, I'd get some miles on the car before determining that you need shocks on a 22K mile car.My winter project is new shocks all round and I need some help on what is the best for my 1983 Turbo Esprit. I have Good Year front tires and rears are P600 Pirellis all brand new. So your thoughts???
If you go ahead with the shock or spring replacement, inspect the rubber suspension bushings. (Especially the sway bar to lower control arm on your '83) You MAY want to refresh those at the same time.
Its only money after all. :crazyeyes
