These were the OEM shocks and I was happy with their performance so even though I was replacing them due to the front driver side breaking and all being extremely corroded. My mechanic was unable to get them through his distributor so it was Autoanything.com to the rescue! Saved hundreds as he would have changed me full retail. Did not realize that next day air is BUSINESS DAY so my Friday order arrived Monday not Saturday...oh well my fault for not reading fine print on FedEx website.
Changed My Whole Ride
I didn't know how bad my suspension was until a VW tech told me my shocks were gone. He suggested Bilstein Touring, so I ordered them from AutoAnything. Great price, fast delivery. I spent a couple hours in my driveway installing them. Yes, one original shock was completely dead; one was weak. Now, the difference is amazing! My car floats over bumps instead of jarring me every time I cross one. A great product.
