    Shock absorbers.

    Are they the same across the range?

    IE looking at ECP website there is different ones for Coupe and the Convertible (turbo)

    http://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/Va...hock-Absorbers

    Now I would like to purchase a full set for my hatchback, are these the same or shall I look elsewhere? I will have a look on EPC but can't ATM

    Thanks
    Matt

    Nope... they are not the same and they will vary depending on weight of the car, expected usage and trim level (sporty models will have stiffer shocks)

    A aftermarket good manufacturer will reflect this in their range, unlike the cheaper one size fits all makes... which will always be a compromise, as they will never put in the R&D work

    Thanking you.

    I have had a look on EPC and it seems I need to check the marking on the front of the existing shock absorber



    So do you think its best I order from GM direct rather than the Bilstiens off ECP?

    Edit: also looking at LMF the shock absorbers they sell are suitable for the whole range of Astra Gs
