Ride: BA XR6

Location: sydney
NSW, Australia

so ive been riding on my lowered ba for about 35xxxkm's and the shocks as expected are on their way out as the car inches closer to 100 000km's. just after some information regarding what shocks are the best to buy, im after better handling without a spine jarring ride and a budget of around 600 (just for parts).

so far ive had quotes for ultima shocks and monro's not sure on exactly which models.

thanks

Forget the Ultima's, the Monroe's are not rubbish but I guess others will talk about Koni's and Bilstein's but I think the Monroe's are good enough. Genuine's are Monroe's and usually last a while.

yer koni's and bilstein's would be nice, but their out of my price range and ill probably sell the car in a years time. i am leaning towards the monro's right now

Monroe GT's are the way to go, they are a good price for a decent shock
