both front/rear. i've read stuff, talked to people, rang places and have a choice of 4 brands, from cheapest:
Koni and Blistein are both fully rebuildeable, koni is a bit more expensive. There is a big price difference between the 1st two and 2nd two. At some shock shop the guy said unless im planning to take my car to the track there is no point getting blistein and that monroe will be good for just normal driving.
what im worried about is if i get monroe and they turn out worse than my current stock 1993 suspension, which i have no idea what it is.
what do u guys think?
one more thing, at the front i know there is 'bump stops', do rear shocks have this, is that what rear shock mounts are?
From what I know, Monroes are pretty decent. Your car came stock with Boge (now known as Sachs) suspension components. I believe your stocks (when brand new, not right now) are better than the Monroes.
Thta is all the help I can lend to you right now, buddy.
yea sure monroes are great, but if you really love the tightness of ur stock suspension don't go with monro they put those on american cars... ftl. you don't necessarily have to go with billstein's but u'll love it and they'll last a lot longer = better investment IMHO
Group buys are special sales that vendors organize in order to sell more items by offering them at a reduced price. Check out the group buys at bf.c, although I don't know how bad their international shipping rates are, especially to NZ.
RSMs and bump stops are completely different things. To answer your question: YES, there are bump stops for both the front and rear brakes.
