    I like Works Performance Shocks they are rebuildable,

    Had mine for about 15 years 1 rebuild.

    Koni, now ikon, is another shock that is good, and rebuilable. My Motorsport had them on when I sold it. They were installed in 1985 and I rebuilt them once. I put Ikon's on my Triumph, they worked well too and looked just like the Koni's.

    iKons are virtually the same as the old Konis. IIRC, iKon got all of the old stock and even the part numbers are the same.

    I put on IKON's because at the time, everybody told me to get a set of Koni's, which no longer existed. Yes, the part numbers are even the same.

    I've been very satisfied with them. I got mine from Bob's BMW, but I'm sure there are multiple sources.
