Alternate bump stops and strut rubber sleeve? (front)

Post by beeton » Thu May 24, 2018 9:32 pm

I am cleaning my BOGE struts. Lower bearing cases are cracked and I don't have an issue paying $25 u.s. for each of those but another $20 for each bump stop and rubber sleeve s getting stupid considering these are the same cheap plastic and rubber as any other car (except size, of course). I am searching for alternates but no-one seems to post dimensions so hard to match. Are there any alternatives out there that you have tried and fit?
2x bearings, 2 stops, 2 rubbers plus shipping = $160 u.s. I can but entire struts for my wife's car for that.

Where have you found the parts for this at these prices?

My best suggestion is ebay and I think sachs are the most common ones, I have found at least.

This is where I got mine for Q4, tested and proven to fit, the owner is a very nice guy, reliable, good prices, ships worldwide and has some discounts from time to time.

Strut bearing: ... l=60501446
Dust cover: ... rrency=EUR
Bump stop: ... rrency=EUR

At the moment discount code for June is "eb9708d880", I'm not sure exactly but it should be up to 10% off on some items.

Shoot when you have any questions or contact the shop directly, should normally be quite responsive.
