shock absorbers

I am going to service my Bravo in the new year, and I am going to change the shock absorbers. I want something that will handle well and have as much ride comfort as possible and want to keep the same ride height. What should I go for? Is it best to replace both the shocks and springs? also keeping in mind price. Should I just stick with the standard stuff?

Re: shock absorbers

KYB Excel-G's are very good shocks, same length but slightly stiffer for better handling. Have them on mine and they are great Heres a link http://www.buypartsby.co.uk/shock-absorbers-fiat.php

Re: shock absorbers

Thanks but they don't supply them for 1.2s. I find the ride quite firm already.

Re: shock absorbers

KYB excel-g are definately my recommendation too. i believe the 1.2 uses the same parts as the 1.4 & 1.6

Yes they fit to 1.2 the KYB Excel G's and they are great. I wear them 2 years now, very good handling just a little bit stiff.

Re: shock absorbers

Yeah all the above - KYB is the best. If you pefer smoother ride, look around for Magnetti-Marelli shocks. These will be cofap shocks in an Italian packaging and have been factory fitted.
