    Both my front shocks have blown since I have lowered my touring with Eibach Sportline springs. The rears are fine so just going to stick with them for now but the front ones have blown and lost all their oil. The front is lowered by 45-50mm so I need some shock to suit. I think that if I go for some standard replacements then they will blow in no time.
    I've been looking at various suppliers but not too sure what to go for. KW are looking favorite at the moment. I want to keep the nice ride. I'm not too bothered about performance, I just don't want them failing again.
    Can anyone offer some advice?

    thats quite a drop you have.
    i would say that you will need something with a shortened piston like the bilstein b8 dampers.
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.
