I have a SV6 sedan with stock FE2 suspension and about 65000 km. In general I like the FE2, but I find it a little harsh over small bumps and poor sections of road. I am wondering whether replacing the shocks would improve it. There seem to be a few options I could look at: Monroe OESpectrum. I understand Monroe make the original shocks. These seem to be the only ones Monroe list for the SV6 - are they the same as original, or better? Koni Special Active (FSD). They sound good, but they don't seem to offer a specific FE2 version like e.g. Monroe do. As far as I can tell they have the same part number for all the SV6 sedans. I wonder how well the damping is matched to the FE2 springs? Factory original? Maybe after 65000k the shocks have worn enough that they are rebounding too fast from small bumps giving a poor ride? However even when the car was new it was in the back of my mind to look for something better when it came time for replacement. I don't want to lower the car or go more sporty than the FE2 - I want to keep it as close to stock as possible. Can anyone make any recommendations or offer any experience? I don't want to replace the shocks and find it makes no difference at all. Thanks for any suggestions.
