could someone help me out please.
I need to replace my front shock absorbers on my Astra 888, not sure if I’m correct in saying are B8’s fitted from new?

Anyway I’ve had B8’s on order since January and Eibach keep saying the factory keeps pushing the orders back so now won’t be In till September, they’ve offered me alternative saying the B6’s will do the job. Has anyone got B6’s and will i notice the difference if I switch?
Appreciate any feed back.

From my research thought it sounds likd the 888's were running VXR shocks all round with Eiback Sportline springs. They were just rebadged VXR shocks and habe an 888 stamped on them.
They will more than likely be sachs oem
Ill get you part numbers tmrw.. but you will be fine with KYB shocks too. Do you need front and rears?

I've looked up the shocks for a VXR - part numbers here

put them into KYB's catalogue -and the equivalent part numbers are 339702 and 339703
