Greg,

 

The link you sent shows both a Rancho and Pro Comp shock. I'm assuming both will work with my M45's sport suspension. Any thoughts on which is the best shock for my application. I would prefer the shock that will give me a less harsh ride than I have now.

 

Thanks,

Dan

Greg,

 

Sorry, but one other question. The info shows the collapsed height of the Rancho shock at 21.125" and the Pro Comp at 18.82". Is the Rancho going to change my ride height. It also states that they're for Off-road use only?

your car has struts .

 

Struts

 

This KYB are the correct part for your car.

 

These shocks are the once that are used for you car and are the same as what you have only under the dealer name

 

regards Greg.

Greg,

 

Did you mean to provide me with a link to KYB or a part number? There's nothing in your response?

Greg,

 

I'm pretty sure what you found was the same ones that I found. These are for the standard suspension model. The dealership wants $210 each for the sport shocks, twice the standard model. I checked with Autoanything on the shock in your link and it's only for the standard suspension.

 

I'm going to approve the payment to you for your time. I still appreciate the effort. If you can find any other info I would appreciate it. Otherwise I'll keep researching.

 

Thanks for your time.
