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.

Please let me know if this new shock works, because I have the same problem with my vehicle.

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.
