Price on Konis/Bilsteins

I'm in the market for some new shocks to match my superlows. However, I am tossing up whether to splurge out on Konis, Bilsteins or something similar, or just stick with the shocks Whiteline sell (I think they are KYBs).

Does anyone know the cost for a full set for an EB-ED sedan? Or where the best (cheapest ) place is to get them from?

Ultimately, is it worth the extra pennies?

Re: Price on Konis/Bilsteins

shortened or 'lowered' shocks will give you improved ride and handling for sure

to give you reference, i payed 800 for 4x shocks, 4x springs and 2x camber kits... camber kits being around 400 for the pair i think

so its not MASSIVE cost... depends who you know too :p

Re: Price on Konis/Bilsteins

Both Koni and Bilstein are superb, if you have the money, it's a no brainer.

Re: Price on Konis/Bilsteins

Lots. The top end ones are in the order of $1000 for 4.

Re: Price on Konis/Bilsteins

hahaha...

Im running King Lows and koni reds (front) and bilstein (rear)

not terribly happy with it actually.......was thinking about going to some progressive rate springs. The bilsteins are originally out of a XE ESP......have a nice little ford stamp on them too :) I paid 600 all up for my setup (including camber kit)

Re: Price on Konis/Bilsteins

I have Monroe GT gas on the front and Bilsteins on the back.
I would have Bilsteins on the front too, but when they needed replacing I just didn't have the $$.

The Monroes are pretty decent though, but not on par with Bilstein or Koni.
