Help !!! shock absorbers

I need to replace the front shocks of my Punto SX75 the only brand of shocks that I know of is Magneti Marelli, un fortunately the shops in Sri Lanka are out of stocks !!!, however there are such brands as “Alco” & “Cosap” (I’m not sure of the spelling of the name but they mentioned some thing sounding like these) PL tell me which one is the better one.

Re: Help !!! shock absorbers

Hi. Thanks for the Input BUT it takes 1 1/2 Months !!!!! for the new stocks to come in and that is also not Guaranteed !!!!!

PS Had a look in Google the correct name of the shocks is “AL-KO” and the other one is called (I think) “Cosopt” please HELP as I need to replace them urgently

Re: Help !!! shock absorbers

al-ko will be fine. just give them a go. here's a link to the al-ko fiat fitment pdf.

http://www.al-ko.es/pdf/turismo/marcas/fiat.pdf

notice there are 2 types available for your car from al-ko.

the hydrotech are standard shocks (3011)
top road gas are the uprated shocks (3011G)

i suggest you order some al-ko 3011G shocks if you want better performance, or the 3011 shocks if you want to save money.
