    Default New shock absorbers Laguna II

    Can anyone recommend replacement shocks for a Laguna II? Are Bilstein shocks worth the extra cash? I'm sure anything will make it track better than it does now with worn out shocks but ideally the new shocks would give me a nice firm ride and sharp turn in.

    Cheers

    I would recommend Koni shocks. The Australian distributor is KONI Australia ? Toperformance Products but it is possible you will be able to buy them cheaper from the UK or France. There may be a Koni Sport version available for your car that has heavier damping and a top adjustment on the front struts. Bilstein are an excellent shock, it just depends on what you want to pay.

    So I eventually got some KYB replacements, nearly 800 for all four corners with the rears at 190 each! I did see Blistien's listed overseas for ~400 for a set of four but wanted them sooner. Then didn't get to the job till this weekend. Oh well....

    Koni didn't list the Laguna.

    I've never seen a strut damper arm bent before or removed a strut one with so little resistance to movement, utterly shagged. No wonder it was making a racket and bouncing around over every little bump.

    One corner down, once I bought the right tools it was pretty straight forward.
