    Reason i ask is because i would like some m sport dampers to go with my eibachs, just to stiffen the cornering feel a little.
    Msport dampers are suposed to be a bit tighter than the sport dampers.

    But surely 2nd hand shock absorbers are not going to perform as well as new ones anyway??

    What about just getting a quality gas damper instead? Boge gas turbo, or similar??

    Why replace parts with cheap alternatives? upgrade the worn out bits and you should never have to replace them anytime soon!
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    lol?

    yes i see the irony. my car has 120k on the clock, so i was thinking of trying some m sport ones to see if they were actually any better! even second hand they will be better than mine!

    M sport are not sport dampers, sport suspension settings came on coupes, the m sport variants are suposed to be 10% tighter on the rear and 28% stiffer on the front.

    where do you get the boge shocks from, i thought they had stopped making them?

    i have used monroe reflex shocks that have complimented my eibachs very well.
    the reflex are monroes version of the koni fsd and worth a look at on ebay (ie quite cheap)
