Rear shocks

Postby Collette Dobson » Fri Jun 10, 2016 12:59

Our Cappo we have had for 20 years has just failed the MOT on leaking rear shocks. Can't complain after that long I suppose, but I can only seem to find them from main agent at £180 each (and I know I should fit a pair). Any suggestions for more affordable sources?

Thanks

Thanks Ian. We got two from that supplier which arrived in 4 days and look really good. David is outside now trying to fit them.He got a set of poly bushes at the same time so at least two of those will get installed. Probably be years before the rest go on!
