    Decisions Decisions Help Advice

    Right. Dudes and Dudettes!!

    It's never flippin' easy with me!!!

    I have acquired a front set of Bilstein shocks by error (MY FAULT).
    To send them back to LMF I lose 20% of the £90 I paid for handling, £18, plus £18.50 for sending them back. I lose £36.50. So that's fairly easy. Not worth me sending them back!

    1) Do I pay to have them fitted now? I'm happy with the bus and not sure if the slight uprating would benefit/be noticed.

    2) Keep them for a couple of years until mine do require changing (Do gas shocks have a shelf life?)

    3) Slap them on the bay of e?

    Just the OE replacements but are about 10% uprated.

    Free storage and breaking? Some people are just too God damn considerate these days, that's what I call a superb offer!!

    My advice would be to check ebay to see what price they are going for on there. Worst thing would be to lose money on ebay because they didn't sell very well.

    Check it out first, you never know, you may even make money!
