    Last weekend while doing my haldex oil/filter i spotted one of my rear shocks has a small leak and thought I might as well look to upgrade them.

    What shocks are the favourites with you lot?

    Sorry I should have done a few searches first!

    I think i'll go with the Bilstein B8's. I've found them at demon tweaks for around £250 for fronts and backs. Anyone know anywhere cheaper?

    That sounds far too cheap for both the front and the back!! They're normally between £450 and £500 for the 4. I've got a feeling the prices you're seeing on Demon Tweeks are per shock, not for a pair.

    **EDIT** Yep..see this bit on the website:

    Eh??
    Surely the springs control the ride hight?
    I havent had these but have been told by both companys and people with them that its a very nice compromise between comfort and handeling?

    i wouldnt worry about the leaking shocks, jabbasport told me that it is not a major issue.

    Just think on the bright side your ride height maybe lower ;-)
