    Arrow Suspension Strut Gaiters.

    I had both front springs replaced about 18 months ago.The other day,I noticed that one of them had been "fitted" after the leg had been reassembled and "cobbled" together with zip ties so I took it off.What I really need to know now, is the lack of a gaiter on the strut an MOT issue??. FELIXX.

    I had a funny feeling someone was going to tell me that!!!!.The thing is,it passed it's last MOT but with an advisory on the spring not seated properly.They said nothing about the boot,it was when I reset it that I noticed it had been put back on as an "afterthought".Oh well.these things happen.Thanks for the advise anyway.FELIXX.

    Wotcha Andy.I've got myself a Transit van LWB and want to convert it into a camper van.It's in really good nick but needed one or two things doing to bring it up to scratch,so that's been taking up most of my time,(I took advantage of the nice weather in the summer!!!),,so now that it's winter again I can get back doing the more mundane jobs.Glad to hear your motor is running sweet,and that you haven't had any issues since.Look after yourself and keep in touch.John.
