Hey, I am in need of some new shock absorbers for my XF Wagon. I dont like KYB, or Monroe, I know most people tend to reccomend Monroes but I've never liked them and never will. I do like Pedders shocks alot though, but ultimately, I think they are a little bit out of my price range at the moment. What do people reccomend for a reasonably cheap shock absorber that is pretty good? I"m even gonna think about finding some good 2nd hand ones at this stage. In the future, I plan to lower my wagon, it's standard height at the moment, I'm not gonna lower it too much though. Just enough to give it a better stance and handle a bit better, I still want to be able to tow things, and get up driveways, so i'm not going stupidly low.
