    Thread: 2010 Golf Wagon - shocks worn?

    Hybrid View

    1. 05-05-2012 06:32 PM #1
      I have a 2010 Golf wagon and the shocks seem to be getting a bit soft (70,000km on car). Is it possible that the shocks would be wearing down that quickly? I'm thinking of replacing them with a Koni FSD Shock Kit to get a bit more body control and better handling (while keeping the stock springs). Anyone have any experience with these shocks?

      no idea.. I only put a few thousand miles on my factory suspension before going with the Koni coils.. which now have around 95k miles on them with almost no indication of wear.
