    Hi guys,

    Thinking of adding Nivomat shocks to my solid axle 740. Has anyone done
    this conversion? I've read the brickboard FAQ website and they've got info
    converting from Nivo to standard, but I'm trying to do the reverse. Does
    the Nivo have different mounting points compared to standard shocks? Is it
    a straight bolt-on or will I need to modify the mounts? I know I'll need
    softer coil springs to go with it too.

    Any advice is appreciated, thanks!

    No, it's just a straight bolt on. You can try it with your original
    springs, and see if the ride is OK for you. Most people who do this
    usually carry lots of weight in the rear, so it doesn't hurt to have
    firmer springs.
