A friend had a pair of motorbike shockers rebuilt at a place in Fife, maybe they could do it?... a shocker's a shocker ?

Droopsnoot - I can source most of my parts from Pete Reeve at Quattro Corner. The poly bushes are readily available from sellers on eBay - failing that again Quattro Corner or you can try AM Cars at Ilminister.

I've opted for koni shocks for the rears. Haven't yet purchased fronts, I'm edging towards a pair of Bilsteins as I hear they are much harder than the konis and oem boge shocks. Happy to get some feedback on that

Droopsnoot - you've also got a cq haven't you?

Regards
Andy
I have tried all damper variations in the 28 years I've had my Cq and Koni adjustables set to one full turn towards firm have proven to be ideal. Fully firm for a track day but you'd not want that on our bumpy uk roads Oh and this is in combination with H&R springs
