    Default Looking for front shocks

    Looking for front shocks for my 93 Series 3 Caterham, new or used. I just brought a car over from the UK and one of the shocks is shot, I think it is a Bilstein type, thanks

    I am looking at these: https://www.nitronusa.com/buy-online...suspension-kit

    They seem to have the features I want at a reasonable price.

    Gaz or Avo from the uK is a good option. Cost with shipping is not too bad.

    That is for a set of four, with springs. Give them a call and ask what a front set will cost. Personally I would not replace a subset of shocks with a different brands. Changing brand is best done with all four at the same time.

    Thanks John, it is jonnydutt@yahoo.com . I do have a set of used front shocks and springs on their way from the UK right now but just in case they don't fit please let me know what you have. Thanks again!

    I have a used set of 4 adjustable Caterham shocks. And I am in Cincy. Out of town til March 8. Can’t give any details except I bought them from Craig Chima, but never got around to installing. Not sure if single or double adjustable. Cleaning out my basement so will offer at an attractive price.

    Hi Kitcat,
    I would definitely like to take a look at them. I just got a set of very clean, used (standard) shocks and springs in from the UK but like the idea of some adjustable units. Please give me a shout when you get back into town, cheers,
    Jonathan
