Replace electric adjustable shocks with ordinary (8.32)?

Bericht door Jepson75 » 17 jul 2019, 11:41

Hi..again :)
I've realized that it's time to replace the adjustable shocks. I've found out that it's possible to refurbish them for a price of €250/pc. But IF I prefer to replace them. Is it just as simple as buying shocks for the 8.32 without electric adjustment and do you have recomnendations for replacement parts. Shocks and springs?

The 8.32 shocks differ from thr standard Thema. So if you replace for standard then you should change the whole assembly.
I think 8.32 shocks are hard to find. The refurbishing price of € 250 per shock is quite high. Better try and find a company that offers better prices. I can inform here if you want.

I have used this company for both my Thema 8.32 and 164 Q4. They also recondition steering racks and can make new springs for you (hard to find for the 8.32).

It is around 200euro per unit and they look and work like new, when you get them back :D

2015 4C Rosso Competizione - 75.000km
