    one of my rear shock is leaking (Bilstein 48530-AD051) and I called the local dealership and they told me they replace with 48530-09B60 made by Maxorber. I've never heard of that brand.

    After doing some searching online it shows 48530-A9680 as a possible Bilstein replacement.

    anyone have any idea if that would work on a 2009 Sport DC?

    I'm looking for a decent shock, but I don't so any off-roading so there is no need for high performance wither. Thanks!

    The A9680 should fit.
    If you never do much Off-Road stuff or hual heavier loads then it really doesn't matter.

    I do however, recommend you replace BOTH shocks at the same time. It's not really a hard jab to do. A floor jack and basic hand tools. If you can operate a ratchet and wrench, you can do the job easily.

    thanks, I was planning to change out both myself and have been soaking the bolts with PB Blaster for awhile. The winters around here are brutal on metal :(

    I used a dremel to cut off the top nut. Fun stuff
