Re: Shocks

I think all the shocks are the same across all the 145s and 146s except the diesel versions which are different.

bypartsby list a shock for all models except diesel upto 1997 so they must have changed then .......

Re: Shocks

boxers are different to the later TS cars, the geometry is different so they will not fit. Numbers different on parts disc.

Re: Shocks

Koni lists 3 different front shocks:
- boxers

EDIT: I was wrong about that small/big TS difference

Re: Shocks

I've installed Koni adjustable shocks in my 146 Ti, what a pleasure! Handling is much better, and I haven't even started tweaking .

It wasn't too expensive either - R4743 (all 4) + R550 fitment (front) (installed the rears myself) (that is £382 spent)

Re: Shocks

Fitted adjustable Koni's to my 96'145QV this weekend too. The ride is improved and a bit more comfortable than with the previous semi-sport shocks.
And they look quite nice too: Koni's

Re: Shocks

The rear shocks are the same.
The front ones do not. The boxer shocks have mounts on the shocks to connect to the track rod ends.
