    Default MOT result is in.....

    And it failed. On two leaky shocks! For those who asked why I didnt replace it when I knew it may fail on one leaky shock, the answer is that if anythng else faled I could change it all together, so I'm glad I did do it that way.

    So my day went as follows. Gettng the failure notice to say two rear shocks needed changing.


    So phoned up bucks autos. An hour and £70 later these turn up!


    After taking both rear shocks out, you can see one is absolutely *******


    While I was there I thought would swap the rear springs over as I've had them in the box for a while


    Nice easy job, took no more than 20 minutes each side and I have a much more colourful back end


    Take it back to the garage for a free retest. And after a seriously quick inspection. I get this....


    So in a word, after a bit of work, yes it passed! Tomorrow I'm going to do the front springs. So if anyone wants a set of SRI springs (not sure how old they are tbh. Probably still the original from an 03 plate). They can have them free if you can pick up from MK area. Anyone wants them, PM me.

    They are apex springs. Lowere 30mm (only 15mm on the sri though) I didnt want it much lower, just subtly. I havent done the front yet, but the rears were REALLY easy, both springs and shocks.

    I notice that you did the sensible thing and deleted certain informations on the pass sheet.


    Top result though.
