    Default V6 cdti sri front shocks

    Hi folks,

    I need to change my front shock mounts. Im looking to change the front shocks also.

    Does the Sri model have different shocks to the standard model?... I know the springs are different but i am unsure about the shocks.

    Also, i have eibachs fitted, so would it be worth investing in the bilstein shocks?

    Yes, part numbers for 2005MY
    Nearside Front : 93190505
    Offside Front : 93190506
    The garage I used found the OE parts were cheaper than anything they could source

    The springs are an issue and are 3 days factory order

    Bilsteins will give a softer ride. Replace with the cheaper (pricewise) originals.

    Mine is softer after all have been replaced
    Can't stand it, much prefer the original performance
