    Unhappy Price of shocks?

    Just had a quote of £247 for 2 new shocks fitted to the rear of my 03 Dti from main dealer, sounds alot to me.

    KONI SPORT ADJUSTABLES ARE LESS THAN THAT.

    SPAX also do a complete kit of adjustable dampers or lowered springs with adjustable dampers

    "bonking all the time"

    Does this mean that you were getting a noise from the rear end? Were the shocks dead? I would be suprised on a vehicle of this age, was probably just the bushes needed changing. Hey ho.

    Only one was shot, but thought it best to do them both, but no noise at all now, and the ride is much better.

    I might take you up on that offer bud. Mine must be due for a replacement soon as I'm over 31,000 miles and Vx only warrant them for 3000 miles.

    just read thread for first time - took mine into garage months ago, got tail kicking out on bumpy corners etc....bit scary...however VX and local garage said shocks were leaking slightly...could this be same problem??? - would stiffer springs calm it down although making ride harder - sri / gsi guys dont seem to have this problem

    are sri and LS shocks the same???
