    Default Shock choice advice

    Hi guys, Im after some advice off anyone who can give it. Ive got a signum V6 CDTI Design with the "sport" suspension fitted and want to change my shocks. I was wondering if bilstein B4 shocks are acceptable or would the B6 ones be a better choice? As standard it is quite stiff but the B4's say they are a good replacement for the standard shocks, not the sports ones.
    Any advice would be very helpful.
    Cheers.

    i am keeping the standard springs on and changing the shocks as they are pretty much worn out. Its the second set of rear ones i have had on as the first set leaked all their oil out in under 10k and now its on 55k and the rears are going again. i just want to get away from the standard vx shocks.

    I put B4s on my 54 Signum 3.0V6 Design and they have been fine. A million times better than the knackered ones on there, which had done 40k and were bouncy as hell. They were also very cheap from euro car parts, £35ish each, BNE-B875s if I recall, but they can check over the phone for you.
