Best places to buy shocks

Like the title reads, I would like to know where the best priced place would be (preferably in Ontario), to buy shocks, possibly KYB, or Bilstein.
And if you have any other suggestions of shocks for an lowered e30 post that too.

Terry, doesn't Dave still do parts?

And get Konis, the Bilsteins aren't as short, and, well, look at your ride height.

track proven!!

http://www.hotbits.org/frames.html

Oh & the ones for E30 Ms have adjustable camber plates thrown in!
40way adjustable too, I think!!


Also, this is a fully-servicable-shock --
these can be rebuilt when they leak, instead of replaced!


For details call Auto Allemagne (819) 682-5000
Aylmer Quebec ask for Warren
was quoted $1400 for Coilovers for my E36!!

I went to the Koni site, and its very weird.

shox.com only has full suspension kits (spring and shox)

I'm reatrded when it comes to buying stuff, I never know the local suppliers. But Koni is a huge company, any performance shop should dsitribute them.

And uh, Terry:

020. Koni Sport shocks 1983 - 1991 Set of 4. Free shipping. 520.80

From shox.com.

Also talk to Bryan, I know he can do Bilstein. See if he can swing Koni, or if not the Billys are fine. A better shock fundamentally, anyways.

Bryan is Autotechnica on the board. He does both Bilstein and H&R, actually.
