    Might be worth giving ECP a phone. I had noticed before that they only list the fronts and not the rears which seems a bit strange to me.

    I called ECP last Friday after a full set of B4's They could do the fronts, but no stock of rear B4's, and no idea when they could get them.

    Called loads of places, but LMF turned out to be the best deal i could get. Hoping mine will be delivered on Thursday for fitting on Friday (along with Eibach springs)

    Koni Adjustable yellows should be just a little more expensive, but will be much more flexible in the long run for comfort. Have a look into them. I wrote them off until I bit the bullet and bought some. Excellent Adjustable performance shock.

    Hopefully they have managed to get a new stock of them. Even LMF said they were not as easy to come by these days.

    Hope you get is sorted out. Oh, and Pics before and after mate.... It seems to be the law around here for this type of mod!!

    plenty of pics off my car on here but they will be some more ,dont think changing to shocks now will make a difference to the height as the springs have lowered it already just want to firm it now as the car is now on 72k and the old ones seem past there best .. khalid
