Front Suspension

Post by Worti » Wed Aug 09, 2017 12:51 pm

Hello Again,

Has anyone of you new shock Absorbers for the front or can organize?
There is no source in Switzerland.. Looks like the time is coming for the Schredder :(

Normal shocks (Monroe) are easy to get. Any parts store I tried so far (also online). Some other parts like the shocks bearings can be a bit more work but you also find those.

The shocks for the adaptive system (Boge) are often at high prices on E-bay. There is a method however to rebuild them. I believe also posted here on this forum.

No need for the schredder just for shocks. It only takes a little bit more effort to find them that a typical car workshop or car parts store won't do.

Yes I could order everywhere, but there was always a cancellation.

Time Frime from the first one is September, the second one November.
EBay.. a store that i dont trust.

I change them now with the suspension from the super that wait for a refurbish and Change them later back if there is a source. Ok, Schredder was a bit harsh :wink:

We see us in Assen, maybee

I think it should still be possible to find the non-adjustable, possibly you could ask http://www.alfissimo.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; about availability.

I was looking for shock absorbers about a month ago - it was real pain - even those Monroe - at the and I luckily found one pair here in CZ from a guy who bought them for his car but never mounted them. And i have also one more which I bought from Autodoc - I have ordered two but they were able to deliver only one. I kept the original one and those will be refurbished when time comes for another replacement.
