RUF suspension

Anyone knows or has an idea of who can rebuild a suspension kit from RUF (front and rear shocks) and how much would it cost?
Thank you.

Can you give a bit more info.
Do they need a complete rebuild?
Do you want them revalved?
Are they a RUF mod/Bilstein?
Or another brand.

All the info I have is that therears have a hypercharged sticker. I think they are shot (age) so I guess a rebuild. The part numer starts with R30 and is stamped RUF, butnot sure if there are Bilstein components.

IIRC they are bilstiens, so I would think Bilstien can do it.... Do you have pics of them? Or maybe buy new, and quite possibly better parts?

Cheers

The Ruf suspension is nothing more than regular bilstiens, they should be able to rebuild them with ease.

shocks

They are revalved Bilsteins. Contact Bilstein... or Ruf and get a new set. I bought some new ones about three years ago from the now dissolved Ruf in Dallas.

According to Ruf they are valved to Ruf's specs. How close that is to Bilstein sports I don't know.

They went to a lot of trouble to engrave the Ruf logo and pat number on the shock / strut body.
