    should be good for what you want! Just not too sure if dissimilar shocks front to back could make strange handling problems. As a damper (shock) is there to slow down the oscilations of the spring. if not paired correctly with front dampers you "could" see some problems

    The B4 is a direct replacement for the standard damper. It'll be fine

    I am thinking to upgrading to, but I have a SRi. So which dampers would I want to keep the same as I have already got? I heard of both b4 & b6.
