Bilstein Shocks

My shocks are on the way out, has anyone been quoted on replacements for the Bilstein shocks? Also I have heard they can be rebuilt, is this the case?

Bilstein shocks can be rebuilt and this is probably your better option as i don't like your chances of getting new Bilsteins that match the spec of the originals. There are a few Bilstein specialists around depending upon what state your in.

Yes, they can be rebuilt not sure on price though. I know someone who bought a pair of bilstein struts off holden for a vn and it cost them about $800 so the shocks probly won't be cheap but bilstein is pretty much the best money can buy.

Thanks mate, just gave them a call, $656 to rebuild front and rear shocks, and you get new warranty.
