    Mines quite an early model tho...

    I'm going to buy new ones anyway (if i have them) when i get my lowering springs (wed), no point fitting old parts for a few quide...

    But my Drivers front has started twanging when turning at low speeds so i'm guessing its this... i'm just wondering if mine has them??, what's the life of the mod do people think?, if mine doesn't have them its nothing really to worry about as new ones will be going on...

    Its just that i'm taking the shockers to a garage to swap on the cheap as i have no spring clamps - if these are bad for wear and tear i might as well invest in some clamps myself...

    Oh yeah, i'll have a bash... just no clamps.

    I'm doing backs myself stripping fronts out - but taking fronts and new front springs to garage to swap over, thats it...

    Do you have self leveling lights if so be careful with the rears as there is a sensor on the nearside rear wishbone you have to undo or replace if you don't and I needed spring clamps for the rear as the sussie wouldn't drop low enough to get the old ones out but they were the longer by 15mm design ones.

    No i have the switch... Looks like i'll have to make a few phone calls or buy some clamps. might come in handy in the future anyway. but £90 quids a joke!
