MG MGF Technical - Shockers
|Been told at a service that one of the rear shockers is leaking and needs replacing, question is, should both rear shockers be replaced? or doesn't it really matter?|
|Yes, you should replace dampers in pairs Colin, and yes, it does matter! Very nasty handling can occur where one shock absorber is tired and the other is not.|
Silver lining time: good opportunity to replace all four dampers with something more decent? You know, Bilsteins perhaps? ;o) ;o) ;o)
|Thanks Rob, as per silver lining, i'm saving up for a tf160 so minimu spend I'm afraid, the old effer has just got to see me through the next 12 months :)|
|Fair enough Col! Second hand dampers from MGFC then, perhaps?|
|its going in to the local dealer tomorrow for a pair to be fitted, they're doing the MoT too, but i'm hopeful it wot be too painful|
away for the weekend, pick it up again monday and all will be well in my little world again :)
or maybe not.......
