Spax Shock absorbers

Post by Syd »

G’day. Is there any difference between the green, red and yellow bodies Spax shock absorbers offered by the various Mini parts sellers. There is a price difference to suggest some difference. I am only looking at standard length but for track days.

Cheers.

Syd i have used Spax adjustable shocks of various type for many years.. yellow,green even had some that were painted Light Blue .. dont ask me what is the difference in Spax types other than some have Krypton gas filled .. google tells me that Krypton Gas is a Heavy Gas so perhaps that is why that Shock type is more expensive ?.. whatever someone on on this Forum should be able to inform much better than me.

I ordered yellow bodied ones with Krypton gas and green arrived. Sorry not on the road yet to check, but maybe double check if you want a particular colour :-)
