I see the Monroe 58620 on Amazon at about a quarter of the price of the nivomats, that's a price I can manage. The Nivomats just too expensive to easily afford them on my meagre pension.I have Monroe 58620 Load Adjust shocks and they work great.
Nivomat are not shock absorbers.Is the ride quality any better with Nivomats vs standard shock?
They DO look like a shock absorber.A rose by any other name...
If you hadn't been following my other Nivomat discussion, you mentioned Amazon and getting Monroe.I see the Monroe 58620 on Amazon at about a quarter of the price of the nivomats, that's a price I can manage. The Nivomats just too expensive to easily afford them on my meagre pension.
So the big question, will a swap from the nivs to 58620s work...??
It is my understanding that the stiffer stock type suspension didn't let the tail bounce enough to facilitate the internal mechanism to achieve correct ride correction. I have to admit that you certainly have more knowledge and first hand experience with the suspension upgrades than I do. I saw pictures of your BadAss van with the big pickup tires and tall proud stance again just yesterday... You got it going on. I'd love to have test driver experience how it handles and drives."You CAN NOT successfully install these on a non Nivomat suspension system and get the full self leveling benefit that they offer."
I don't see why not. Other people have and they don't complain about it. It's not the softer spring that helps them to level, because my AWD has Nivomats and it has the spring packs that are stiffer - from the factory.
