PostPosted: Tue Feb 12, 2019 6:27 pm    Post subject: Shock absorbers help! Reply with quote

I am looking to swap out my front shocks as driver side is getting towards end of life!

C4S with PASM - shocks are available from Porsche at about £400 each. Are the Bilstein B4’s oem? My main reason for asking is that I have a DSC fitted and don’t want to start frigging about with maps so ideally want a shock with exactly the same reaponse as oem!

Anyone been here before?

I'm in the same position, also with a PASM C4S with the DSC kit.

I ordered (and paid for) some B4's in August, but just cancelled my order after another delay to delivery. B6's remain an option, or back to Porsche for some originals.

Mine were tested at CG coupe of years ago and were fine, but they've done another 10,000 miles since then, plus I have Eibachs to go on - when the car comes back from Hartech.....

i just checked with Euro car parts for you and they can have the Bilsteins to them within 5-7 days and then shipped priority out to you, but checking the prices if Porsche are saying a PASM shock is only £400 i think this will work out cheaper

Hi What mileage have you put on the car for the suspension to be coming to end og life or is it due t a fault or just age etc.

Car has done 54k. But what I don’t know is if it has hit a pothole or something in its life. It’s not dead - I’m just a bit ocd! Replaced the windscreen wiper arms today - that’s how sad I am Wink

B6’s are great if you can actually get them!!

How much did you pay for the B6's, how long did you have to wait to get them?

Thanks Smile
