    Have to change front shocks and top arms this week . Are KYP shocks an OEM part? and best choice for top arms?

    Cheers Gaz. Decided to wait and go with Onlinecarparts in Germany for the Bilsteins, and sundries. Fingers crossed they arrive within the week : )

    So all arrived fine within 5 days, pretty good for a bargain price Euro company. Took day off to get job done and the wishbone bolts on the suspension arms have ceased, can't seem to find any kits to replace the ones I'm going to have to destroy.. Any pointers?
