Stock Height Standard Shock Absorbers front & rear

So what are you running

The Sachs/ Boge catalogue I looked in no longer lists a front but lists a rear?

I can see 113513031G ....

I grew out of scraping my favourite toys on the gravel a long time ago...My daily is low enough...
Like having a step ladder to mount my bus....oeeer..

I like camping and sleeping in the clouds..

Keep it stock...back to basics..

Same part front or rear. FWIW I use the Gas filled option available from Nige at SSVC spares shop. Ride is a bit more firm than standard - which is good when towing the caravan - less pitching on undulating roads, but can be a tad too firm when running solo. Have considered trying gas at the back and standard at the front, but not got round to trying it yet.

Microsoft updates killed my dog....
Sorry post..
Thanks for the reply.
I fitted boge shocks front and back on Pebbles and just wanted to see what others had done...
Maybe would buy four of another spec and do just that. ..type x on the fronts and boge on the rears..
I have tow bar fitted..and fitted arb to stiffen up front roll issues. .
Boge do not say they are fronts. ..All the traders say front and rear...
MAY JUST BUY FOUR MORE..
