Hey guys i'm trying to find the cheapest shocks to slam my ute, I have the sleeve kit and been told that you can insert
N10 Pulsar
MK1 Golf
Toyota Starlet
Corolla KP61

I'm having difficulty located some and the ones I know of cost a fortune, is there any other 45mm shock absorbers that can be inserted for cheap and I can get 'maximum street cred' :)

Putting adjuster sleeves on the outside of the strut has no effect on which strut insert cartridges can be fitted. So the basic question is which inserts fit into a 1200 strut.

If your purpose is to lower the 1200 drastically, be aware that some of the inserts that have been recommended have less compression than the stock setup. Do you really need new inserts??? The factory inserts have a 6.7 inch stroke, with a minimum compressed length of 462 mm. If you haven't shortened the strut tubes, shorter inserts won't do a thing. After lowering your 1200 if you find it hitting the bump stops, then you need to shorten the strut tubes.
