    Replacing shocks

    Seeing though my car failed its MOT on two original knackered shocks, would it be worth replacing the other 2 original ones also? Even if they arnt gone yet? Especially as im considering lowering it 30mm. Or should they be okay for the time being?

    What would people recomend?

    Full suspension kit = Over budget. I've still got my speeding ticket to pay, and insurance in september.

    No need for replacing shocks you could always fit back on the oversize tyres you brought before.

    Front or rears Skot? I've had some good condition shocks lying around from when I changed mine over to the Konis. Might still be lying around somewhere if they are any use. They had done about 7k IIRC on the rears and around 13K on the front as I changed the rears before the fronts as I had a set of Gsi dampers on at the time.

    Not sure what they would look like now as I just left them out but I could have a look if your interested.
