If you can afford it, I would stay with stock. Price the entire system as more things can go wrong than leaky shocks.

There are issues with almost every other combination, including Dinan and if you don't need the higher spring rates why bother?

That is a great question...I don't know the answer, however, there is a guy who advert. in the back of the Roundel who claims to be able to rebuild certain components of the system...he just does not say which ones. I am trying to figure out, should I: replace with stock, replace with euro rear springs and shocks, or replace front and rear with a Dinan suspension? Any comments on changes in ride quality, etc?
