    Heard from Strano parts folks Bilsteins were back ordered and wouldn't be availalable till spring. I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and go with SA Koni's which are better anyway but more $$$$. I couldn't even find bilsteins available for my 4wd chevy truck a couple years ago and and had to go with Rancho's.

    i have bilstein with stock springs on my z and love them.

    I am debating between the Konis and the KYB's also. I know the KYB's are cheaper, but I hear the Koni's are worth it. Anyone with actual G values????

    Look around on the internet...do a google search for Bilstein Shock...I found all 4 for under $100 each...not a bad deal considering that the Bilstein Website is selling each shock for $120.

    I cant find them anywhere. I called and noone has them. Half the sites are actually the same place that has about 5 different names.

    Thanks I will give em a try. I have been thinking about it and I may just go with Koni S/a on all 4s. You can get a 3/4" drop without changing springs if you want with those shocks.

    ????????!!!!?? Springs determine your ride height with the stock suspension setup, not your shocks unless you have a coilover system like QA1s! ?????

    the koni S/A front shocks have 2 mounting locations-one for stock height -this is what I was told by a member here. To get a 3/4" drop in the rear you can use the "hose" mod which is a heater hose used instead of the stock rubber piece.


    *** also what does ???!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! mean? that you are excited or have a question or both?
