Any suggestions for just a slight lowering for an SH XT? Pretty sure stock ground clearance is about 225mm, which is the same as stock landcruiser and a little excessive. Would like to lower it a little to find a better compromise between lower centre of gravity and ground clearance.

Still plan to use it off road a little, but nothing excessive. Thinking about 20-30 mm lower? The self-levelling rear suspension rules out springs only, and would prefer a swap in rather than coilovers for cost reasons. Any suggestions?

Replace rear shocks with non-self levellers. Get Pedders sports Ryder springs. Does exactly what you are looking to do

Tein springs are another option.

From the first post.......Pedders make a suitable shock or get non-SLS shocks from an NA or S-Edition model.

Bump for some advice. I have the pedders sport ryder springs and find the front end to be somewhat bouncy at speed. I feel that the OEM struts are underdamped for these springs. Would pedders struts be better? Or the newer KYB's?

A Pedders workshop can certainly put your car on their test machine, and tell you whether you've got a dead strut or not (albeit, they 'always' seem to find your suspension needs some sort of work :roll: )? A dead strut will feel 'bouncy'

'Bouncy' is ambiguous, as far as suspension description goes; very stiff suspensions can be bouncy for the opposite reason to a soft suspension or dead struts going 'boing-boing' ( :lol: at my use of sophisticated terms). In depth, it comes down to suspension 'frequency', and that sort of suspension work is a bittuva black art. Generically, I would say yes, a 'matched' set of springs / struts is going to work best, every time (thinking: the OEM struts are not up to the task).

:ok:

I had the pedders struts and springs so not sure if there is any difference with pedders springs on stock struts.

SH struts still designed for comfort so I don't think you can eliminate the bounce unless you go coils or modded Sti struts but that will be the complete opposite lol.

The pedders springs overall will be firmer and help with the boatyness but bounce will still be there in some form
