Option if suspension need to be replace

repost of the topic but I think the shocks of my spider need to be replace very soon just wondering if anyone can give some idea regarding price of replacement and after market kit.

Thanks

If I recall correctly the OEM dampers are crazy $$ but rarely fail even when it's a weekend track car. Are you talking about the common every 10k ball joints & arms or the dampers?

thx blu. apparently my car is a 2002 model I dont think the shock absorber can last for so long without replacing? Found out KW has a V3 set costing approx 10000usd. wonder how much original replacement will cost.

Best option obviously are replacement shocks from aftermarket brand such as bilstein or koni etc but seems like they dont have anything for 360

My car is 99 with 55,000 miles on it, shocks are fine according to the dealer when they did the ball joints.

Unless they are leaking, odds are those Boge shocks will still be good when you sell or trade the car. Why do you think they need changing?

My garage offers an oil replacement - maintenance at a much lower price. Maybe somebody there can do it for you.

i am surprise the original shocks can last for so long without the oil drying out after more than 10 years of service? and more so there is no aftermarket can provide replacement. I guess the number is too small for manufacturer to even consider. anyone has idea as to approx how much per shocks if getting the original?

W- That is why they put seals in the shocks. Shock technology has come a long way. Boge and Sachs shocks are tough and pretty much trouble free. You will have enough real problems with a Ferrari without looking for imaginary ones.
