    Hi, all first off I'm in need of new shocks, spring, drop links and top mounts all round for my e36 323i m-tech and found these sachs shocks and they also do springs and drop links http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=120393538442 or item no 120393538442 if link doesn't work, just wondering if anyone has had these before and would recomend them or should I think about different shocks etc.. supersport or koni I'm not wanting to spend loads though as I'm getting the powerflex full chasis kit aswell

    I thought I'd share my new purchase and give all you guys a warning before parting with you cash the item in question is these is these http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=370137695543 or item no 370137695543 which will be returned asap The quality is rubbish the ends where the bar goes through looks like its been shaved off with a knife alright you say, I know you don't see that part but the worst thing was the hole that goes through the middle, isn't even all the way through one end is 24.2mm and the others 24.8mm and I orded the 25mm bush whats worst the rear one are even worse At 19mm when I got them they were 20.2mm at one end and 19.4mm at other and where the bar sits on the bracket closest to the chasis theres only 2-3mm of bush material on on and 5mm on the other bush my advise is not to buy anything from this guy and go with powerflex ok there more expensive but they are better quality at the end of the day thanks for any replies

    Shocks look good value for sachs/boge
    Im very surprised about the Flo-flex bushes. Ive used them a few times and have been very happy.
