PostPosted: Wed Jan 16, 2019 8:48 pm    Post subject: Best place to buy front shocks Reply with quote

Just got my car back from my mechanic after doing a few jobs I had on my list. Turns out one of my front shockers has started to weep so I'm going to get 2 new ones. Where's the best place to get them. Don't want any wizzy sport stuff as the standard ones are fine for my taste.......Unless of course they're cheaper Grin

Carnewal were cheapest for Bilstein B4 last time I looked.

These are the stock OE damper.

I was thinking of a full set of Konis from carnewal at one time.

So am I right in thinking this is the correct ones I need:

https://www.onlinecarparts.co.uk/bilstein-1043461.html

Seem like good value compared to anywhere else, or am I missing something?

Hi Alex,

I picked up a pair of B4 (albeit for a C4S) from a place called JJC Race and Rally through ebay

Seem to remember it came to £490...

Looks like it. For your car I got 99634304302 which returns that part.

Pre facelift cab and coupe C4 996 seems to have the same part



Have a look on eBay.de -it seems bilstein are cheaper on the continent.

Alex I got those, they are fine. Weird though ....they were 15mm shorter than the original part. Fitted perfectly and car sits at stock height with no bottoming out when driving.
Replace the rubbery secondary spring/bump stop that sits on the shaft, at the same time

Purchased my shocks today ready for the imminent service. Also got some new top mounts and thanks to a previous thread on this forum I stumbled upon Friday I've saved myself a packet by buying the 997 C4 top mounts at half price of the 996 C4 ones thumbsup
