I have bought rear shocks for I-Miev on Amayama. It was cheaper than from the dealer.
My I-Miev is 2012. I have emailed Amayama the part number I took from the old shocks,
they replied with a quote, I have paid them, and they have shipped me new shocks.

My Ion has done 57k miles now and compared to when I bought it at 28k miles the shock absorbers are feeling decidedly "non-optimal", in that the car bounces and oscillates a lot more than it used to. It used to be firm but fairly well damped.

Looks like replacements are hard to come by though.... :?

KYB started to produce rear shock absorbers for I-Miev. Part number is KSF1404.
Also I-Mievs rear shock absorbers looks exactly like shock absorbers from Mitsubishi Pajero Pinin, one of the most popular part number is KYB343408.
My rear shock absorbers are dead, so I ordered those ones from Pajero and I will try them on I-Miev.

I got Pajero shock absorbers from partsouq.com and installed them. Price is $26 for two and shipping is $44.
