Cinq Shock Absorbers

I went to the garage today for them to look at my suspension, they told me that the front right shock absorber isnt going back into place properly (or some technical doo dah), so basically I need to get a new shock absorbers.

Would it be possible to just buy one or would it be best to buy 4?
Any fairly cheap(er) places to buy them from?

At least get two new for the front. They should always be replaced in pairs.

Cheers

Re: Cinq Shock Absorbers

Sounds like a good excuse to upgrade the suspension to me If you have the cash I would recommend lowering it all round with a decent suspension kit from AVO/Gmax etc...

Re: Cinq Shock Absorbers

LOL well no I havent got the cash really to spend out on a whole new kit. I've got MOT in May so got to get suspension sorted & get some low pros, so really need to get whats minimal as possible.

Anyone know a decent place to get some shocks?
