I just installed a set of the Vicks "Hydrasport" shocks in my S4. At 200 bucks shipped for the set of 4 I couldn't resist.
The dampers I removed from my car were Boge brand and marked as Alfa Romeo. I suspect they were original. Odometer reads 96K. The old items had almost no compression damping but still rebounded fairly well.
My initial test drive was a revelation. The car feels so much better in every respect.
I'm both very surprised and very happy.
