Uprated Shocks?

Post by AcidicDavey » Wed Mar 06, 2013 8:48 pm

Hey all!

I plan to fit some 30mm lowering springs in the near future but I'm wondering if anywhere still stocks good value uprated shocks? I can get a set of 4 Blistein B4 Shocks which are OE spec. All I can find are KONi Yellows but they're so expensive! Well they are on partsforvolvo anyway!

Anyone know if somewhere still stocks uprated shocks?

They're what I'd like but they probably sold before I even had my car lol

I got a set of gas kybs on ebay for not much, maybe £120 all in- I'm keeping standard springs though would they still work?

Hi Dave, I cant remember who I bought off but this is the sort of shock I borght, this seems a very good price to me---

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Excel-G-Rear- ... 20ca5c0b72

I do remember that some kybs are red and others black so it might be a nice to get the seller to send you ones that look the same ;-)

Really like mine sharpened up the ride and steering no end!

Tim

Thank you for that Tim, they do indeed seem good value. Might have to message them to see if there's a deal to be done on a full set :D
