Re: Where can I buy Bilstein Heavy Duty Shocks for our cars? (S40FUN)

The US Bilstein site lists some internet retailers. They don't all show ones for our car but if you email or call them with part numbers I've been told they can get.<p> <A HREF="http://www.bilstein.com/retail_us.php" TARGET="_blank">http://www.bilstein.com/retail_us.php</A><p>The German Bilstein website has more info on what is available since they have various damping levels and some with a shorter stroke for lowered cars. Wasn't clear to me though what is equivalent to our stock and sport suspension.<p> <A HREF="http://katalog.bilstein.de" TARGET="_blank">http://katalog.bilstein.de</A>/

Re: (S40FUN)

from what I read on another forum (the "easter egg" one) you haven't even picked up your car yet, how come you want to replace your shocks already?

Re: (TFS)

Because the way that this car understeers, I think the shocks are gone, but again they only have 9K miles on them. Maybe it is just the behavior of the car.
