It seems that most forum members prefer Bilsteins, however although I have read all the various recent threads on shocks, nobody has come up with a reason as to why. Both Monroe and KYB offer shocks that they recommend for 107's and KYB actually seems to claim OEM equivalency, so other than the fact that Bilsteins seem to offer the harshest ride, I'm in a bit of a fog as to which way to go. Currently Monkeywrench has KYB's on sale and I'm tempted, but would welcome advice on the subject. Driving all of 1,500-2,000 miles per summer does not exactly demand ultra high performance and the current shocks, while a touch weaker than perfect, are adequate in most ways.
