Would you recommend? I'm thinking of getting some but he doesn't quote prices online. If you don't mind how much did they cost delivered?

Na Man, I think he said do that all at the next stage i.e. body work. I'll double check though! One of my rear shocks he found out, has the previous owner's extender stuck in and, he's struggling to get it out! Might just mean having to buy another shock! He's gonna see what can be done though but doesn't seem likely it'll come out at this stage....
The down's of buying used gear!

It just means I can only adjust damping on 1 side of the rear.. and sadly, the last owner left it at near the hardest setting! Absolute TOOL!

Need to work out what my options are.

I'd contact BC,and see what they can do for you:

Thanks Ian, I'd wrote to them last night so awaiting their response. Itchy feet ME, wants to call them right now but I'm not getting any work done being on here LOLL.

You're absolutely right actually, replacing 1 shock is really not the done thing but what are the implications IF I did only chose to buy the one for now (since price IS a factor).

Sam

I'm guessing that the history of the kit you bought is unknown,so you don't really have any idea what sort of mileage the kit did prior to you buying it.

Most items on a car are subject to wear and tear,suspension is one of those components that suffers more than most.
There will always be an imbalance on the axle where one damper is far newer than the other,so you might find that to get the balance right,you'll need to adjust one damper to suit the other,which might prove impossible.

I realise money is indeed a factor,but a call to BC may well be best,as they might be able to overhaul both shocks at the same time,avoiding replacing with new.

Bilstein do a overhaul service,for an idea of cost,they charge 80.00 per shock + the return postage.

PS: You have an email

Hey Ian,
Thanks for the email Will reply later this PM I've just spoken with BC directly and very helpful chap indeed. It doesnt sound as bad as I thought it might be so hopefulyl a few emails to him with some pics might help diagnose the problem and come to a nice solution!

Fingers crossed.
Sam

Sumils right Mo, at Gaydon, all I planned on doing was an Aero Lip and Wheels... now I'm into all sorts of upgrades but luckily, if tomorrow I decide to sell up... I should see a decent amount back since the upgrades are, I hope, decent ones!
