Front shocks

Post by KY2006 » Tue Apr 07, 2020 3:08 pm

Hi, all,

The front electronic shocks of my 1993 164QV24 have given up. Am trying to look for non-electronic replacement. However, there are plenty rear shocks on the web, but nothing on front shocks. KYB might have it but heard that KYB is too stiff. Boge and Sacks are OEM but they are rare and hyper expensive. With the 164 model already 30 years old, most parts are no longer available. Let us share what would you do with your shocks when they need replacing.

If you won't be able to get new one then refurbishment is the only option.
Guys here in Poland refurbished those electric shock absorbers in company in Poland and were satisfied.
There's no other option, it won't fit from any other car. Also pre- and post-facelift have different front shock absorbers (and it's upper mount).

I can highly recommend this place in Poland. I know others have used them as well.
