Need my coilovers shocks rebuilt
« on: Jan 05, 20, 02:32 »
Blew a front strut on my h&r coils.

Anyone know of somewhere local to get it rebuilt?

It's probably cheaper to buy a new shock from H&R.  Unless they are 4k+ coilovers it doesn't make sense to have the shocks rebuilt and possibly can't be rebuilt depending on how they are made.

I may be mistaken, but I believe that H&R coilovers use Bilstein valving?  At least they did in the early 90's.  If that's the case, Bilstein offers an affordable rebuild service out of their California location.

It could be a dead end but worth exploring?

Contacted Bilstein and h&r... Not good... $350 per shock plus $25 to remove/reinstall the springs... Plus shipping to and from...

Anyone's have shocks and springs for a mk4?

H&R are located in Bellingham so you could maybe drop off and pick up yourself? When you say remove spring, could you not do that yourself and just give them the shock?
