finally sold the broken car so got the replacement shocks on the Wizard, took me most of the day, in between running Wife and children around Roll Eyes Handles sweet now, no longer feeling like the road is made of a trampoline! Brake and the front end doesn't contnue to bounce like some old pogo stick. Cool.
Monroe Magnums front and back. Cool
Cant work out how to replace the trailing arm bushes Embarrassed I was told on the suspension check that they were flogged out. Might have to pay someone to do these Sad
  

So many CATS , so FEW recipes!
My girlfriend thinks I'm a Stalker..Well she's not EXACTLY my girlfriend, yet!

I think I may have made a mistake  Undecided
The ride is now hard , corners real good but ..... Embarrassed
  The Monroe Ventures or is it Adventure range, as was suggested, would have been a better choice. Sad
$390 per pair, Shocked it is something I have to live with now Smiley

Munroe Magnums TDT.  From Repco. Pedders were more, Shock Shop and Pitstop about the same. Adventure range were cheaper.
My mate at Midas recons these will out last the car, The way I bend things , he is probably right! Smiley

unless you pop the top seal Sad did that on my Munroe's. they didn't come with a cover so all the crap that gets on the shaft gets pushed into the seal.
