    Someone posted about a month back that they had just fitted a set of konis to a bay and gave prices and supplier in Au?
    I cant find the post.
    May need to source some for someone soon so interested in the details.
    Thanks

    Thanks Grant.
    Checked that thread and most of what comes up on a search. but no go.
    Might send him a pm.
    The post Im thinking of had the prices paid localy and business.
    Think just under 200? Ea?

    I see that telstra has equalised business services.
    Widespread loss of service across a swage of businesses.
    Guess that cuts your chances of a refund based on descriminatory practices?

    I must admit Syncro is correct in recommending Bilstein shocks. I have a set on my T3 at the moment and just with light truck tyres the handling is very good with hardly any body roll at all. having said that I do also have a set of Koni that I will fit when I put the weitec lowering springs on. I have experienced both and really not much difference between the 2 with standard Caravelle springs.

    Thanks Mark.

    Phil.
    Agree bilstiens not bad.
    Had some on daughters bus. Noticeable quality over the average HD.

    Still have a preference for the konis tho as a plush but very controlled ride plus like the ability to fine tune the rebound .

    I put Konis on Little Red - they replaced the original 1962 shocks which were Bilsteins

    My bus is running Konis, and the SC has.............whatever was on there from the previous owner/s.

    The SC will be given a set of Koni Reds in due course. ;)

    Col - I had PMed Tom and he told me:

    "my local (burpengary) Fulcrum suspension specialist, Had to get them up from Melbourne. I have a 76 Camper.
    Front part number 80-2110....list price $206.81 ea...my cost $167.52 +
    Rear part number 80-2220...list price $217.41 ea....my cost $176.10 +
    I fitted them myself, I have adjusted the front to 180 degrees and the rear to 360 degrees. Originally the front were full soft and the rear 180 degrees. Slightly stiffer is better. I fitted them myself ,simple . "

    And we had talked about these prices - problem answered!
