Shock Absorbers

Post by chillpacer » Sun Oct 15, 2017 4:33 pm

I am planning to replace the shock absorbers on my 1999 Mitsubishi 3000GT. Are Bilstein shocks compatible with this model?

From what I understand, the rear Bilsteins are a direct fit, but the fronts will be an insert cartridge, so you have to cut up a pair of front strut assemblies to put the inserts into. I've seen instructions on one of the big forums, but it seems pretty straightforward.
