    Default Koni Shocks - where to buy?

    I need to replace the shocks in my 306. I will either be putting in GTi6 items or preferably, some Koni's. Since the car is lowered I figured the koni's are better matched. Where would I source these from in Sydney? And who would know the best type?

    Ray, if your around, can you help with koni's???

    I'll need to replace the dampers fairly quickly as, the rear bushings are cracked and the dampers are basically shagged (bottoming out all the time)

    The only place Ive asked is Pedders Brookvale. They are getting a quote, but say they havent done a 306 before, so Im a bit hesitant to trust them.

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    PM Ray for Konis. Then have Paul fit them.

    Otherwise, Heismans at Sydenham do Bilstein. East Coast in Killarwee down south are one of the best shops in Sydney. They can do all of the work for you, if you like... not sure how much they've played with Frenchies though.

    Did Ray say something about being off air for a coupla days?

    You'd better wait, besides offering the best price, I think you get tossed out of Aussie Frogs if you publicly admit to buying Konis before talking to Ray.

    cheers ed ge

    Yes, guys, I'm checking them out!

    Please don't use PMs, they fill up too fast for me to get your messages... even worse, if you send one and it arrives and I have a full box, I can't reply to you!

    Tip is to remember to delete your sent items.

    go through them and save each one either under user name or topic in separate files

    shouldn't take you too long as you only have 70 in there

    i clear the last page of mine out quite often and i still have 280+ in there

    Ray,
    Sent you an email on the weekend, so I figured I'd post here incase you happened to see it

    Urgently need some konis for the rear of the 205, the car is currently very unbalanced (and thus unsafe).

    Cheers.
