I have been running boge shocks and superlows for about 3 or so years now.
Suspension is starting to get squeeky but they have been awesome shocks for the price.

are they stiffer than standared and does the back end bounce around or is it firm?

The rear could be a little more firmer like the front but honestly there a great shock for the money.

Its not as bad as you have explained it, its only a little sorter on the rear and thats it. Dosent bounce around or anything like that. My EL sedan haddels alot better and feels alot better on the road.

As im a picky person it would of been nicer to have the back end feeling like the front.

What price did you pay for your BOGE's and where'd you get 'em?

I desperately need to replace my rears as they're still stock (after 180,000km's), but I'm on a mad budget.

Someone, somewhere has to have reviewed Ultima.

Need to be careful with firming up the rear - I can just about guarantee that a setup which makes rear "feel" as firm as front will = VERY taily a*** end (easy to break it loose). If you run a firm a*** ridewise you may need to soften the sway bar - ie. fit a Whiteline adjustable that gives you softer as well as harder than std setting options.

f**k i just realized the front and the rear shock have different threads and like a dumb a*** i tried screwing the front bolt on the rear shock so its totally f**k and im guessing warranty wont cover me so im going to have to tap it hopefully this works because the shaft is already very skinny i don't want it to be to skinny it brakes

I just got an email back from Wholesale Suspension quoting me $335 inc. delivery for rear BOGE's and rear Superlows for my AU. Is this a reasonable price?

Im running shortened Ultima shocks all round in my EB. I was also looking for something better than stock but still on a budget.
Cant really compare them to other brands as I havent tried many others, but they're 100 times better than the monroe gt gas shocks that came out of my car. Feels a lot stiffer now, limited body roll however still has a little bit of a** bounce when going over bumps at high speed (rough freeways etc).
Im more than happy with them, good value for the money.
(btw, these were paired with lovells springs sport low in the front(SL), super low in the rear (SSL).
