Hi, after inspecting my rear suspension I found oil leaking out of the rear shock absorber, No good.
So I need new shock absorbers.
I´ve been browsing the web for this parts but with no luck.

I´d be pleaced if someone could help me to find the shock absorbers.

(I´ve found some OEM but they are expensive)

You won't find any non OEM shocks for the L322. I looked hard and ended up having to swallow at the stealers... 300 bucks each :(

I saved on the labour though and did it myself - the hardest part is jacking up the vehicle...

They are Billstein shocks - I even went direct to Billstein and they didn't have anything!

REALLY? Hmmm. I just replaced a set or rear L322 shocks with a set of Monroe absorbers from AB. They were about $140 where the genuine articles were around $290 if I remember right.

Really?! I wasn't aware of this and stand corrected. Wish I'd have known this a couple of months ago. Are you happy with the ride?

buy them from England they will cost less get the Bilstiens they are better shocks, cutting crners on suspension part will effect ride quality.
I have replaced all 4 shocks on my truck at 62Kmiles my RR bilstien was blown about 250.00 each from the dealer if you ask for best price in Colorado

Monroe d4004

Here in Siberia costs 60$

I know 5 Range Rover on Monroe for 2 years without any problems.

Don't rush for replacing the shocks. It's normal to find some oil there after cold winter times. I have same situation on my rear shock absorbers but they are still working. After this winter I will replace them with Monroe shocks.

My Life. You do have a way with words that brings a smile to my face. I thought the P38 had oil filled shocks but the L322's were gas filled. Could someone in the know please confirm this. It does make sense that there is a touch of oil in there to keep things lubed and quiet and keep the seals working.

How do you access the upper bolts? I’ve searched online & all I see are videos/tutorials on how to remove the air bags, not the shocks themselves. Do you go in through the boot/trunk? 2007 L322 Supercharged.
