    Default Bilstein B4 Shocks on an SRI Chassis??

    I've been looking (more forced into) buying some new rear shocks and have come across the Bilstein B4 from LMF at £49 each for the rear. Just wondered if anyone else had these on a 2.2 SRI, if they fit ok because ive heard the SRI chassis is abit different to the standard ones.

    Vaux want £72 each for the standard shockers, would people advise standard stocks or Bilstein B4's??? My vec isn't lowered.

    Just seen these on euro car parts:

    Part Number: 625880375

    They looks the same as the ones from LMF but they say for a standard chassis.

    Does anyone know if they will fit or if they are the same as the ones LMF offer for £49?

    Bilstein B4's are a straight swap for SRI shocks, I have them on my rear.

    B4's only come in one type mate. There standard length but fit none lowered SRi's perfectly. They will also go on dropped SRi's but only if they haven't been dropped loads.
