    Might be worth an email to LMF incase there going to do another of their clearance offers - earlier this year they were buy one get one free (by the time you took into consideration the price they were retailed at) on the costs they had and the ride is superb

    Only one set on Ebay I could see and there was nothing in it price wise. Looks like a good price.

    I checked the LMF website and they quoted £189 each.
    I've spoken to Mick at LMF this afternoon and he says they'll match the price i got originally and beat the postage cost by a few £'s.
    I'd prefere to give LMF the order anyway.

    Sorted.

    Just the fronts for now Khalid. Will sort the rears out when i get back from Florida.
    I think it's the f/o/s shock on mine thats been contributing to the 'indifferent' steering problems i've been having (was going to buy a set in the future anyway).
    The B4's are a slightly upgraded shock from the originals, but B6's are about 30% uprated from originals.
    There's a B6 and a B6 'stiffer' choice.
    I'll be buying the 'stiffer' version mate.
