    Apparently the newer/longer bolts that are recommended for the top of the shocks are M10-60 1.25 thread bolts. I've looked locally here in Toronto, Canada but can't find them (not at Rona, Canadian Tire, or Home Depot, etc).
    I installed KYB's in place of stock rears last year on a 2013 Abarth I had. All I needed was the recommended bushings and I reused the original bolts. Best $90 bucks I ever spent really transformed the car on the highway.

    Yeah the price difference between the KYBs and KONIs are astronomical and hearing all of the praise for the KYBs it seems like it has the best price to performance ratio. I plan to install them also with lowering springs in the rear to level out the car somewhat as the rear sits (or stands haha) too high.

    Just waiting for some bushings to be delivered before I tackle this mod, will post before and after pictures here once I get the ball rolling.

    If PepBoys has them, then I would imagine other auto chain stores such as Autozone or O'Reilly's would also.

    If all else fails:

    I've bought from them before. Shipping could get expensive for small orders though.

    So I'm about to replace the rear shocks on My Abarth. I see on one post that you need some bushings, but on another the poster said he used the bolts he had. For clarity, do I need both bolts and bushings? Oh. mine is a 2017 and the rear shocks have created an issue with my tires doing a bit of a bunny hop. There's a history behind this car sitting for almost a year and a half, which created a few minor issues.

    If you use the correct shocks specified for Fiat 500, you do not need bushings.

    If you use the "Corvette" spec KYB or Bilstein shocks, then you do need the bushings.

    So I understand I can get a KYB shock for the Abarth, no bushings needed? What is the "Corvette" spec?

    Aren’t KYB’s way too stiff?

    I could be wrong but I don't think that KYB makes shocks that are Abarth specific. I think that the ones that fit Abarths are meant to fit some years of Corvettes and you need the bushings to make them fit Abarths.

    If you look up KYB shocks for a Fiat 500 Abarth, you get a part number that will fit without issue. It is however, crosslisted to the 500 Pop and 500 Sport. The shock they will sell you is basically a low-end non performance shock. Can you install it without issue on a 500 Abarth? Yes. But you will get a downgrade in suspension performance as the shocks are spec'd for comfort not performance. If you have lowering springs they will be bouncy.

    If you want to maintain a sporty suspension performance, that's where upgrading to Koni Sport shocks ($$$), or substituting the KYB / Bilstein B8 "corvette" shocks comes into play. The specific Corvette shock in question, especially the B8 meant for the ZR1, is a stiffer and shorter than the base 500 shock, and plays well with lowering springs and maintains a firm ride.

    If you are just looking to maintain drivability and don't want hassle, and don't care about using non-performance shocks, order the KYB for the Fiat 500 and call it a day. Easy peasy.

    More like the factory shocks are way too soft, making the rear end bounce around like its in a bouncy castle.
