Re: Rear Shocks replacement
I'm waiting for OME should only be 1-2 months. Bilstein will hopefully follow suit. The point of a good shock is consistency and control during body motion, firm is good but stiff with poor control it becomes a dump truck. For that I want high end stuff tailored to the vehicle. For reducing body roll its also about the bars, bushings, and links..
I'll be doing SRT Bars+bwoody, at some point with either full OME suspensions, or just bilsteins if they show up, with the bars.
The fact is all the ones you've listed are mass production units that I don't feel offer the same quality and longevity I want for the WK2. I'm 100% sure on the quality of companies like OME and Bilstein, owned both on multiple vehicle, never a blink in quality or ride/control.
For me shocks are a do it once proposition.
I could be wrong and rancho and skyjacker make high ends stuff now.
