    Default Replacement rear shocks

    Took the car for it's MOT today and as well as failing because of a broken front spring I was told the rear shocks have had it (was half expecting the shocks as I knew they have been weeping for a bit)

    Searching on the forum reveals that most folks are fitting Bilstein B4s as replacements. My question to the panel is what kind of ride do they give - harder than standard? Reason for question is that I generally prefer comfort over handling.

    Opinions please.

    Thanks.

    Default

    the ride is dictated by the springs.. not the dampers.

    B4's are direct replacements..you won't notice..
