  1. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    Hi all Has anyone had this issue. I brought a 2011fo2 from Singapore and long story short the front shocks needed changing for it to pass compliance. The mechanics rang me said they changed them with shocks from bmw but a error has popped up as I left the mechanics. Something about the dynamic...
  2. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I'm not finding a lot of retailers in Canada that sell Sachs shocks/struts and they are super expensive. Best prices I can find so far are on Rockauto.com but it will still be over $1,000 shipped. Have any of you recently bought them elsewhere that I haven't heard of? Looked at germanparts.ca...
  3. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    The E39 sedans had front and rear M-Technik I/II distinctions (S704A, S705A), as well as HD and EE versions. The tourings had Sports+lowered (S227A). Aftermarket manufacturers do not use the M-distinctions, and group replacements into fronts according to engine design (Sachs 556834 for i6...

    Good day fellow BMW owners. I drive a 2011 BMW 320D. My front shocks needs replacement and I got a quote of R 1700 (115 USD) for Gabriel front shocks each. Dunlop shock absorbers are only R 650 (44 USD) each, which are less than half the price of Gabriel shocks. I am hesitant to fit Dunlop...
  5. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Hi all, new user here and I recently bought a 1995 525i E34. The rear shocks are in really bad shape and need to be replaced so I ordered a set of KYB Excel G's that I have confirmed to be the correct match for my 525i. I started replacing the shocks and I am almost done but the shocks seem...
  6. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey Guys Not sure how to describe the issue. Sometimes when turning, the car will not feel as gripped to the surface. At slow speeds it can feel hard to turn the steering wheel at times. At faster speeds it feels loose. If I turn quickly, it feels as if the front wheels are gliding a little...
  7. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    It looks like it’s time for new dampers on my 550i (E61). I can save a bit of money by buying Bilstein (“OEM”) dampers for the front, though the “OEM” dampers my local specialist found for the rear are a brand I don’t know (and don’t remember, though it starts with a C or K … ). I’ve had good...
  8. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Hello everybody, I need to change the rear shock absorbers on my E34. While searching for E34 shock absorbers, I found some for E28 at a very good price and I want to know if it's possible to mount them on my car. Thank you! Daniel Moldovan

    Hey Guys, i have a 2007 335i E92 with about 165 km on it. In the last couple of months i have noticed that the ride is not as smooth and the handling has gone down after i replaced my steering rack (another story) its feels very disconnected when driving. i replaced the rack with a brand new one...
  10. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    So I replaced both rear shocks with some Monroe replacements at the same time yesterday on my 2007 X3. I double checked and both top nuts are completely tightened down (both equally have 5/8" of thread above the nut) yet I have a knocking sound coming from the rear passenger side. - I know...
  11. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Good day all I have an F25 that is only 17,000 KM old. at first it was smooth like silk to Drive compared to my Wife's E90 - 2009 320i .. Lately I have started to feel that the suspension turned to be fragile, I can feel every little tiny crack on the pavement. My E90 is 62,000 KM old, 3...
  12. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    The driver's side rear shock on my 04 325i base sedan seems to be frozen, so I want to replace both rear shocks. I've replaced front and rear stock struts with Bilsteins on my 06 Porsche Carrera, so feel I should be able to handle replacement of these BMW rear shocks. Am I correct to assume it...
