    Default PI Suspension?

    Its the dreaded MOT time for me at the end of the month.

    I currently have two snapped springs at the front that will need to be sorted before the MOT.

    I would usually just replace the springs, but due to the car being on 190,000 miles the shocks and other springs are probably showing wear.
    So I plan to replace all the shocks and springs in one go.

    I have seen a PI kit on ebay - just wondering if anyone has the same kit and if it is any good?;

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-V...ht_5473wt_1397

    Thanks!

    Absolute crap! They'll only last a week cos they're made out of chocolate.
    Cheap for a reason.
    Total rubbish and I defy anyone to say otherwise.
    OK, I know this cos I fitted a new set to my Carlton (got them as a freebie, certainly wouldn't pay for them) and they lasted all of 3000 miles before they became too soft to be any good. In all honesty, they went 'off' after maybe 2000 miles. They really are a waste of money, like most cheap mods.

    Seriously, the phrase 'buy cheap - buy twice' has never been so apt!
