Post Shock absorbers
Can anyone tell me if the shock absorbers are standard length or shortened on the GTM Coupe?

Mine runs std length, I can't see anyone ordering or providing short throw units especially as the donuts do a certain amount of damping inherently.

I figured they would be the standard length ones, just crossed my mind when I saw these options

Standard https://www.minisport.com/gazgta231b12-gaz-adjustable-mini-shock-absorbers-front-each.html

Lowered https://www.minisport.com/gazgta236b12-gaz-adjustable-mini-shock-absorbers-front-lowered-each.html

I stand corrected.... But still, I'd use standard ones.

Yep I run Standard length too. you just have to watch full bump if you have trimmed your bump stops at all and run very low.

if you fit the shorter ones, there is a good chance you will limit the rebound travel and bottom out the shock rather than the rebound buffers from memory.

This all assumes standard GTM mounts and Mini parts
