VY II Calais 3.8
Hey all,

The question is effectively in the title. I need to do the shocks, pretty much all four corners on my VY II Calais. I'm checking the Monroe website and it makes no distinction as to what is FE1, FE1.5, FE2, etc, and it actually recommends the same part number for basically all sedans and whatnot.

I really, really enjoy how my car rides, and I want to preserve that. I want what I would have gotten straight from the factory, and positively nothing else.

So, can anyone enlighten me as to what part numbers I need to look for, where I can find them, and if I need to go through Holden or not? While I'm here, who makes the factory ones? Are they Monroe, or are they Bilstein, KYB, or something else?

Cheers,
Rory

FE1/1.5/2 are the spring types, they all used the same shock absorber. Likely OEM is Monroe.
