Ride: EF XR6

Location: Port Hedland
WA, Australia

Hey guys, I'm from Port Hedland, WA so getting parts for my EF isn't as easy as it seems. My EF XR6 has pretty knackered shocks in it, so I want to replace them. I would like to retain the stock ride height as kerbs are high and the roads are bad here. I have been reading a lot of threads on this site such as:

http://www.fordmods.com/gearbox-suspension-brake-driveline-f4/monroe-gt-sport-lowered-shock-absorbers-t73671.html?hilit=Shock%20absorbers&start=20

http://www.fordmods.com/post890716.html?hilit=Shock%20absorbers#p890716

http://www.fordmods.com/gearbox-suspension-brake-driveline-f4/koni-shocks-t60937.html?hilit=shock%20absorbers

http://www.fordmods.com/gearbox-suspension-brake-driveline-f4/koni-bilstein-that-much-better-than-boge-or-ultima-t76471.html?hilit=Shocks

These have been a great resource, but ultimately it comes down to price. So what I was hoping that people could post up what shocks/bushkits/springs that have and how much it cost them (and where the got them)? I'll put it up here at the start of the thread so that others can have a nice resource, and hopefully I can work out what to get. I'll list what I have gathered so far, but if you have them and can confirm it would be good. Everything is per set of 4.

Shocks:


Bilstein -
Koni Red -
Koni Sport - $1000
Pedders Sportryder - $743 (Pedders, Osbourne Park)
KYB -
Boge -
Monroe - $380 - $400
Ultima - $220

Springs:

Whiteline Lows - $340
King Springs (All heights) - $260

Bush Kits (Full Kits):

Nolathane - $700
Superpro - $700

My car came with the setup it has, so I can't give you prices, but i can tell you that i have nolathane bushes in the front and they creak like an 80yr old in the morning. :? I have had it in the suspension place to try to quiten it up, but that only last about a week, then it starts again. I have heard that the super pro bushes are a tad soffter. So they are still pretty firm but ride better and quiter.

I paid $340 new for Selby/Whiteline "Lows" for a set of 4. You could add that in if you wish!

Cheer's guys, updated. I'm on holidays at the moment so updates won't be as often as if I was at home.

Don't forget to specify where you were bought your gear - its free advertising for your shop of choice if you got good service/pricing!
