2001 2.8 v6 front shocks
« on: August 09, 2015, 12:01:25 PM »
I'm replacing the front shocks as they are not good also the top rubber is worn .I will also replace the springs and anything else that is worn out (maybe the whole car  :D)
What would be the best shocks and springs for me to fit ?

If you don't want to pay genuine prices then the likes of KYB (Kayaba) springs and dampers should be decent quality (they're an O.E supplier) and available from the factors assuming they make 'em for Galaxy fitment.
