I have put this up on the Yahoo site but it may as well go here as well. ;)

My shock absorbers are cactus and I need for new ones

Stuart over on the Yahoo site suggested these may fit Boge27-453-1, 1 54 023 2; Armstrong 63A-0210 (Triumph GT6); or Monroe 104S but I could find a listing in our local books. I can of course try specialist Haflinger suppliers in Europe.

When looking locally, one supplier was very helpful and took all the measurements, made a few calls and came up with Monroe 15-0308 (VW Bug) at about $240 US a pair and Koni 80-1350 at about $290 US a pair (was Aussie dollars but expressed in US $$ so would most appreciate the rip offs we have in goods in Aust). I was a bit shocked by the price of the Monroes but the price of the Konis is what I would expect and they are rebuildable and more importantly adjustable.

Anyone had Konis on their vehicles?? - If so how are they??

Uk based supplier listing delivery to Australia - but you would have to ask for a delivery cost quote:

Then you would probably have to pay import duty or something. So I don't think you are doing too badly when you look at the price on the web site I linked too - ONLY for ONE unit!

P.s. If I find a better deal, I will post it.

Thanks - yes the Aust price is very good on the Konis.

HaflingerTechnick have Sachs shockies for about 40% of the Monro/Koni price. Anyone used these and if so how have you found them. Clearly will not be as good as Konis but may very well be up to the task.

Cheers

Garry
