Question H&R sport shocks

Hi guys,
My H&R shocks at the rear finally gave up, where can I order just the shocks? Is it okay to replace only the rears since the fronts are still good? thanks

I heard that Hr sport shocks are the same as Bilstein Sport shocks. So maybe you can just get Bilstein shocks instead.

Both BavAuto.com and TurnerMotorsports.com are having a sale right now. Both have great service.

Made by Bilstein, but valved to H&R specs. That being said the valve rates are very very similar.

A customer of mine had the same issue, I guess the H&R shocks aren't available separately. We replaced them with Bilstein Sports. I also have them for sale

PM me if you want a good deal on them.

So the front struts are a monotube design just like Bilstein's ?
