So, my 2003 B5.5 is still riding on its original shocks which are totally gone after 17yr + 140k. I was looking to get springs too because as I’ll be there already I might as well.
Then, this really nice closeout deal showed up for a brand new set of H&R Sport Cup Kit, which include...
For sale is a set of FWD Bilstein Sport shocks for the B5/B5.5 platform. Price is $135 shipped. In good condition, no leaks, worked well when installed on the car. These have roughly 30-40K miles on them. I sold the car and no longer have a use for these.

Time to change front shocks, they start to make noise on bad road and my Passat b5.5 tdi 130hp sway like boat :D

Anyone have experience DIY'ing the front struts on a the NMS? Would like to know if it's practical to do before I go in to get them checked (I have scalloping on the rear tires, looked and saw my rear shocks leaked... I know I can do that job DIY).
Any help/advice would be welcome.
OK so I need to replace the shocks on the wife's '03 Wagon V6 4Mo - we want to keep the high stock ride height and squishy comfy suspension - i.e. not lowering and no sport dampers. I've done a few searches but not coming up with the info I'm looking for.
1. So - can anybody...
I am looking a good used set of front and rear shocks for a 2001 (pre-facelift) B5 Passat GLX 4-motion. The ones on the car have given up the ghost and are much too jouncy and harsh now. If anyone has a set in the Northern NJ, NY or PA area I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
