Re: Shocks and Struts

I love my wk bilsteins...I like the slight lift look and have been very impressed with the ride. I cannot speak for the srt bilsteins, though I imagine they are even better. With the srt8 sway bwoody end links (only rear on right now, front sway and front end links will be on in a couple weeks) I love my ride. I think it needs to even out but you can def notice the roll is reduced when throwing it into a corner. I have one in particular I try with every mod on a regular basis and have been very impressed. just my .02

Re: Shocks and Struts

Unless he has changed his prices, Nick(Kolak) was charging $329 for a set of 4. That was a couple of months ago.

Re: Shocks and Struts

I got my Bilstein's from shockwarehouse... free shipping and they had a 5% off coupon - but I had to pay 6% tax since they are in FL and I bought them when I lived in FL.

They shipped them the same day I ordered them, and they were at my house the next day (again, I lived about a few hours from their warehouse).

I love them too... I think you'll be really happy with either the regular bilstein's or the SRT ones over stock. The stock stuff is sooooooooo soft. If/when you get your new shocks, before you install them but after you remove the old stuff - press down on them to see how soft the stock stuff really is.

Re: Shocks and Struts

I cant wait to get them. I cant afford to order them till after X mas as i need to save for that and i need to do brakes first.

As far as price goes, i am not super picky with that. I could care less about an extra $10 to buy from a good vendor vs saving $10 and buying from some one i have no experience with. Not to say any of theses vendors are bad but if i pay $317 and get free shipping i am happy, i will pay the extra buck to give return business to good vendors. That and i hate egay. (ebay)
