Car has fialed its MOT, on quite a few things... but for now the main thing is emissions and Front suspension leaking badly.

So therefore i need two new front shocks.

Currently on is 60mm gmax full kit. so what do you reckon just replace the two front shocks and use existing springs?

if so recommend me some

want decent quality though not mega money short on cash at mo

scrap the heap of junk
only messing pal tbh id replace with standard springs and shocks as the lowered springs will just inevitably damage your standard shocks again, i doubt it would be that much for shocks and springs, easy to fit yourself, jobs a good en

the kit was bought second hand well over a year ago and its a full kit and personally i thought they were ok nothing special, and no they are definently not under warranty.

simply i want to replace the front shocks with some thing simial to the gmax obviuosly better though.

Yes adam the emissions light is still on
