I have both sitting in the garage not sure which to put on the car. What is the difference between Peugeot OEM shocks and Bilstein B4 shocks Part No VNE-4595/6?

Uhmming and aghhing about these having had a set of the 205 equivelents on a previous 205 that had less damping than the 120k standard dampers that i'd replaced them with...just remember'd that i know someone with these fitted on a near identical rallye i'll try his and report back.

Why the frig i didn't think of this earlier god only knows Roll eyes
