    rear shocker snapped off

    After me saying in a previous thread about my suspension, I came out of Tesco's yesterday and noticed this.. drove it home and now have to new ones winging there way here.
    In the mean time I will be contacting the supplier who I got these from and having a right old moan at them.

    Looks nasty Kirsty.
    Did that happen whilst you were driving or did you notice it when you were parked up?

    It has been quite bouncy for a little as 3 of the shocks are actually knackered checked this the other day.

    Broke it must have broke on the way to Tesco's, it was only when I came out I thought I'd look to see how much more fluid I lost and noticed it was broke.

    I think they are GT Cupline's
    I about to email the supplier now, I would ideally like a full refund then go get something abit better. I will not be putting these on any of my cars again.
