  • Bilstein BE5-A713

    Anyone know if and where I could purchase 1 Bilstein BE5-A713 preferably online as I live in NZ and would need to ship it.
    As it looks like I have a leaking rear.
    Thanks in advance

    Hi.

    The 713 isn't a good shock. The travel is short and the valving is wrong. Better to replace it with a pair of better travel shocks.

      Doesnt sound good.

      As for the shocks https://www.sparesbox.com.au ships to NZ and has the 713, but it might be best to do both and upgrade them as photoprado mentioned.

          Okay team, i replaced the right rear 713 as it was leaking. Now my left rear is leaking.
          so looking at purchasing a set of rear shocks for my 07 prado with standard height king springs in it.
          Do I take a chance and buy another set of 713's or try something else?
          Looking to buy them of the net because i live in rural nz.
          Who has the best prices online?
          Thanks in advance
