    New Rear Shocks Too Hard - Any Suggestions (Golf TDI Diesel 5 Door 2.0L MK6, 2010)

    Just had two new KYB shocks fitted as one was leaking, the originals were "SACHS 1k0 512 013 CP"

    The ride is now way too hard, a real bone-shaking experice requiring a sick-bag!

    My service guy tells me the suppliers have cross-referenced my cars reg and the KYP are an exact replacement.

    They also said the old ones were not the correct P/No which makes me supicious.

    Does anyone know the correct P/No or have any suggestions, it would be very much appreciated, thank you!

    Sachs are the OE manufacturer of many VAG dampers, the number 1K0 512 013 CP looks like a VW part number but doesn't come up so I need you to private message me your UK reg number so I can check further. Could you find out the part number of the KYB dampers that have been fitted?

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
