I have an issue with the front offside shock absorber on my 03 R32.
Both shocks were replaced last year (2021) with oem shocks. The front offside only has an inch and a half of travel compared to the full travel on the nearside. The car has only travelled 600 miles since fitting.
The shock absorbers are now obsolete and not manufactured any longer, therefore making any warranty claim diffucult
The VW dealer we sourced them through has been good in helping confirm the fault and are working to help find a solution.
Does anyone know of a supplier/source with oem suspension in stock? I have tried some of the usual sources, vwpartsinternational, vw heritage, ebay etc but no luck on suitable front shocks.
I aim to keep the car as standard as possible so not really wanting to go down the coil over route.
Would any of the other VAG marques of the same era be compatible, Audi S3 or TT?
Does Bilstien, koni etc do a suitable replacement?
Thanks in advance for any help
