    Trim : Sri Nav

    Engine : 1.8

    Year : 2006

    Default Rear Shocks

    Hi all,

    Ordered some Bilstein Shocks from Euro Car Parts, they've been in touch saying they don't have them and offering me the Sachs ones for the same price.

    My question is are these any good or should I see if they're getting the Bilsteins back in?

    Thanks in advance...

    I have Bilstein B4's all round mate and they don't make much difference to standard shocks. Not had them on long enough to advise on durability although they are reviewed well on here so for the price they seem to last... but if your after a sporty setup I would opt elsewhere...

    I would of been disappointed with the Bilstein/Eibach setup had I not just had a little one which puts a positive on the fact that the car wasn't stiffened up as much as expected

    the springs are opel gts = sri spec... the reflex shocks are uprated over standard kit.

    B4's are no better than oe imo
