don't just refresh the front though, they're bound to be knackered and the backs are very easy to change

Deffinately do front and back. For all four springs anything from £140 to £200 depending on brand.

grins - yup.. :thumbsup:
and your right about being quicker than me, i thought i might catch you at the petrol station :)
and no not a waste of time, because until i bottomed the other day i had assumed it was simply an uncomfortable ride and 16's would help and was unaware my suspension was stuffed in some way. A voyage of discovery you might say., and it was only after a visit to my local stealer and asked for a spec sheet did i discover it was an m sport, the last thing i wanted for comfort. So im wiser now.

You really need to get this done soon now, road warrior. I’m not sure I could handle it coming to nothing without some kind of self-harming. :rofl:
