1988 Pontiac Fiero Gt.. I need to replace my front shocks and was looking at different brands including monroe sensa-trac, KYB Gas-a-Just, and recently the Bilstein B4 shocks. I know what some are going to say... Check the search button... but all I could find was where to get them and not necessarily any reviews on how good they are comparatively speaking.
.
So I am wondering if anyone has used these and what they are like? I heard they can be revalved as well. Should I pay up for them and will they be better than the KYB gas-a-justs?

Bilstein B4 shocks Bilstein B4 for 46.00 each

or

KYB Gas-A-Just KYB for 36.00 each

thanks for the input nosaint! I was thinking the same thing.


anyone have them installed on a fiero?

Also it says cant be used with lowering springs but I was going to cut a coil in my springs someday? any issues with that?

Yea I have heard mixed signals on KYBs but I heard those monotube shocks are great for handling purposes

I had Bilsteins all around on my Ferrari and Lambo kit. They were fine.
