    The sheds are looking very nice as they settle into their new home and start looking like they've been there a long time. Could you add a bit to your shed thread giving us a virtual tour of what they look like now? In the early days when it was just a mass of bare earth and foundation holes it looked like a gargantuan task, but it's all looking good now.

    Really grateful for the time everyone has taken to respond, thanks a lot. There's more to it than I initially thought and doing all 4 will definitely be best. I need to look into all the suggestions a bit more but I like the idea of +2 shocks with normal springs to counter any sag.

    Just to spend a little less in one go would a lift block with normal springs achieve the same thing? Then I could replace the shocks and remove the blocks a little later down the line.

    As said above, "twanging" noises are normal from the rear suspension during the extremes of axle articulation. If this is your only concern regarding your rear springs, leave well alone and save yourself a few quid.
