Hi guys,

Posted on the 156 forum, but didn't get the answer I was looking for, so I thought I'd ask you knowledgeable folks.

I'll have to change my shocks in the very near future, and I've been seriously considering going for a set of B4's, but then I came across a set of OEM GTA shocks...

Can anyone tell me the major difference in terms of stiffness between the two?

I know that B4's are a bit stiffer than the sports pack OEM, but what about the GTA ones, how stiff are they? Would they be somewhere between the B4's and the B6's?


Thanks for your input!

GTA OEM shock already end of sale as i know.
So i think if you want to have the similar experience then i suggest B6.

I have checked with Alfisti and ordered B6.
They said B6 setup from the original GTA shocks.
I will install it with new GTA wagon OEM spring set in these few weeks.
Hope everything will be good.

Thanks Bruce, for your prompt reply.

So if I understood correctly, B4's are a bit stiffer than Sport Pack OEM and B6's are a bit stiffer than GTA OEM, is that it?

So could we put it like this (in terms of stiffness):
1 - Sport Pack OEM
2 - B4
3 - GTA OEM
4 - B6

1 being softer and 4 being stiffer.

Yes? :)

I am not sure 1st and 2nd which one stiffer.
Vendor said B6 offer nearly setup like GTA OEM.
But I don't have chance to compare, because I am not the 1st owner and my current OEM shock like boat already.

I will install B6 on 7/11

And now, "la pièce de résistance"!

I really need shocks (and springs and a set of Eibach ARB..)!!!

Ok, so I finally got an answer on this. The answer is YES! :)

B6's are a bit stiffer than OEM GTA shocks, just like B4's are a bit stiffer than standard OEM Sports Pack shocks. :thumbup:
