A few years ago, I bought a set of new FX3 shocks for my old 92 FX3 car from MidAmerica and they worked as advertised when installed. However, once the old shocks were removed, two of the actuators had cracked gears and needed to be replaced also. These are harder to find than the shocks are.

I took my original shocks and shipped them to Bilstein for rebuild and different valving. The worked as advertised also.
With a Bilstein rebuild, be careful what you ask for - if you ask for stiffer shocks for racing purposes you will get 'stiffer' shocks.
