<O>Hello all,
<O>How much can I expect to pay for a set of Boge shocks struts (including boots) 
<O>for a 5000S Quattro installed?  The front end is starting to hop into the 
<O>garage.  I'm bracing for the sticker shock.

The front shocks can be ordered for around $70 each, e.g. from Stranos.
There is a lot of confusion over the rear shocks for 5000Q's. Even though 
Boge are OEM on the car, the aftermarket suppliers catalogs do not list a
Boge shock for this application. One story is that there is a dispute
between Audi and Boge over the aftermarket sale of this shock. It is also
possible that Boge make a shock for another application, that is identical
or maybe differs only in its valving. Sam at Stranos is looking into this
for me at the moment.
Does anyone have any more info on this situation?

Of course you can always buy them at the Audi dealer - if you feel like paying
an insulting price for them.

Installation is apparently not a big deal, if your mechanic has the right tools.
