I just realised something.
When the Foz went in for the 105 000 km service, I was told that one of the SLS shocks were leaking.
Dont see any leaking on them.

Has anyone else replaced the  SLS with the Foz X suspension?

thanks manfred, as per suspicions, markers on the springs are pink and have the exact same amount of coils as yours.

luckily we have a complete set of coilovers going on the car

Ok, my SH is saggy ass and bouncy, so need to replace rears. I want to throw the SLS out and install X rears and springs. Can anyone assist me with a VIN for a SH X to get a cost on the setup? Does anybody know of a aftermarket shock for the rear and make and part number?

I went with a full pedders suspension setup,  was only slightly more than stock and the ride is much improved, the pedders suppliers in jhb were helpfull and efficient and can adjust to your requirements and shipped them to my door in 2 days

the only place you can get the oe x springs is from the dealer, and you will need to wait for back order from japan.
