Default Saxo Bilstein B8 or Group N

Hi all, I need some Bilstein shocks for my Rallycross build, but can't afford the off the shelf prices. Does anyone have some used shocks I can buy off them??

You need to buy premium membership on here to look in the for sale section. I have a friend who is doing rally cross at the min and he's using gaz shocks as if one breaks or starts leaking he can send it off Monday morning and have it returned by Thursday like new. Doesn't cost the world either.

GAZ are really not strong enough for Rally or Rallycross. The Bilstein are thicker diameter struts and much stronger. Even they are at the minimum for that kind of usage.

Gaz do a hell of a lot of custom work. I know my mates are pretty much a copy of another make just sent the specs to gaz and they did the rest.

Ok. Without that clarification people may think their off the shelf stuff is up to the job. Even Gaz dont recommend those parts for heavy duty use.

There's nothing wrong on buying used Bilstein's as long as the price is right and you know that they are not extremely beaten up. Based on my experience before, I bought used bilstein truck shocks for my rig and after a few months they need to be rebuilt.
