    Anyone know the part nos. for the sachs gas shocks originally fitted to my facelift 2.2 direct sri. My newly fitted b4s are crap, too soft. How much stiffer are b6s.

    Are they softer than the SRi shocks?

    Have you fitted lowering springs?

    me too -i've been meaning to place an order today but been too busy. but now i'm worried that SRi shocks might be better than B4s? B4s are a replacement for the standard shocks... so i'm wondering if new SRi shocks with eibach pro kit might be the way forward?

    we need more opinions please!
