They make a coil conversion thats like $1,500 you might as well buy your shocks from Arnotts and new pump and you'll be back in business. With coils you might as well drive a toyota.

Thanks for that, in my part of the world they're quoting $1,000+ PER SHOCK , and our Arnotts in a big department store that doesn't sell car parts.

Got the Arnotts link http://www.arnottindustries.com/ thanks,

It's not that bad in that it might have to lie for 10 days before it really sinks down.

I'll be struggling on for the next few months as the dealer renewed a 'valve block' in the front wheel arch some time ago that slowed down the sinking susp.
