Hi Guys
I'm looking for a pair of rear discs and both rear shock absorbers (not Skyhook)
for my 2008 4.2. Would consider nearly new, as well as new.
If you can help, please PM me with details.
I'm just about to put her into hibernation until Spring, so if you know of
anything coming your way soonish, I'd be interested in discussing.
Thanks for reading ;)

Yep. I always check ES to see if they have any offers on.
It's the shock absorber price that's making my eyes water a bit.
I've already thanked the baby Jesus, Santa and any other deity
I can think of, that the original owner didn't specify Skyhook,
while he had his chequebook out. £1,700 each, plus VAT! :eek:

Good suggestion. Will follow that up. Really though, shocks at about STG250 a corner, for a car of this type, aren't expensive.
Its things like this, that my vehicle account is for. Hopefully at some time in the dim and distant future,
I'll have the money flow going mostly in the other direction :)

Am I right in seeing the non-skyhook shocks for the 2008 4.2 at £230 each on ES?

If so it’s certainly worth a call to Ross at Meridien to see if the forum discount will save you a few quid.

You won’t see many used ones as they are pretty cheap new and probably knackered when removed from a breaker.

That's them Zep. The price is okay really, considering how important they are.
I hate paying 'retail' for anything and was trying to find out, if the GT shocks are common to any other models. Enquiries are ongoing.
Cheers Keano. I may take you up on that part. Would you PM me your price. Thanks :)

I’m the same, I love a bargain. I just wasn’t sure the juice was worth the squeeze. I hope you do find an alternative, that would be good for everyone, good luck! :)
