Help 156 SW best rear shocks?

Hi all,

have to replace the rear shocks. NSR spring plate dropped as usual to rust worm eating through the Alfa's...

Now I can get them from EPay from £44 to well over a hundred.

Makes would be Anschler, Kayaba, Sachs, Boge, BÖLK, Monroe and Bendix.

Which one would you use on it (and maybe why)?

Ta, Axel

I fitted a pair on Anschler rear shocks last December as the originals were leaking and failed the mot and they feel fine on the road. Got them from eurocarparts (currently £56.99) though they also list Bilsteins for £98. Used bilsteins before on a few cars and found them to be good.

Used monroes/sachs before on fords and some classics and they produce decent set of shocks.

Is your SW normal rear shocks or does it have the self levelling ones?

The Anschlers are the ones for £44...

eurocarparts have a 30% off offer on that ends tomorrow so the anschler ones would work out at £36 each
