Can anyone recommend a reputable seller of Bilstein shocks, preferably in NSW?
Been stuffed about by an eBay seller.

I use Fulcrum Suspensions (out of QLD)

 

But I believe Bilstein is in NSW

Thanks for the quick response guys, I’ve sent an email to the closest Fulcrum dealer to me and have placed an enquiry to Heasmans via their website. I’ll see what they come back with.
Cheers much appreciated.

I would second Fulcrum as a supplier.

I contacted them for parts for my latest project.

I could get the same items a bit cheaper on ebay.

Unfortunately they wouldnt price match.

But the response to my questions sealed the deal for me with them.

The order was packed and sent very quickly.

These days I tend to value customer service a good bit higher than pricing.

Received my Bilstein front shocks yesterday, with our current dollar 2018 pricing was $480 for the pair delivered. These were apparently the last set in the country till the end of January 2019.
I’ve also picked up some Lovells springs which were $168 delivered.

I was considering both Kings and Lovells Heavy Duty Standard Height range so I contacted them for spring rates.
Both companies were very helpful replying to my emails within hours. I’m doing the HQ stubs so will be using standard height at the front and 1” lower in the rear.

For reference here is what I was sent in regards to spring rates:

Kings: Front 650lb
Rear 190lb

Lovells: Front 760lb
Rear 200lb

Thanks heaps to everyone for your help.
