Default HB D8 big bores - good?

Just looking for some decent big-bores for an MBX5R.. the ones from the D8 are the cheapest I found, are they decent? How do they compare to Mugen and Hongnor (X2)?

Anyone know if they'll fit okay too? Length etc.

Also I can't tell if they're adjustable or not:

Any thoughts appreciated. It also seems weird to me that the springs are the same length, I'm sure I'm missing something obvious.

Cheers

Hey mate, the D8 shocks are great, super smooth and the shock boots are tough, unlike the Jammin 16mm shocks, i used to have to replace my X2 ones all the time! Buuuuut the early D8 kits have the same length shocks front and rear which will be no good for the mugen, unless you can find some from a newer kit which has longer rear shocks as they should work.

Cheers

Thanks heaps mate, that makes sense to me. I guess those ones are no good because they have the short rear ones.

Do you sell the jammin sets?
I guess I'm lookin for anything around the price of that ebay link (~90au for a set).
