    changing shocks

    Any of you technical guys know how hard it would be to change a set of lowered shocks from a 2013 gs lc to a 2015 gsa lc and vice versa. is it a plug n play what with the esa etc Or is it more complicated

    Any info would be welcome

    I think GSA and GS shocks are different lengths.I would imagine lowered GS shocks on a GSA might look a bit shit!

    Stands will need to be changed and as a replacement ESA shock has to be coded/calibrated to the ECU by the dealer I would assume that it will not be a case of plug and play

    I thought the gsa and gs are the same frames so to lower either its just putting the lower or normal shocks depending on buyers choice at the factory .

    Stands will need to be changed and as a replacement ESA shock has to be coded/calibrated to the ECU by the dealer I would assume that it will not be a case of plug and play

    So a wee bit more complicated than plug n play . thanks anyway

    I changed my rear shock in Kazakhstan at the side of the road, new unit worked perfect when plugged in, not been coded or calibrated at all.
