it hasn't started banging yet :D

should have it sorted by tomorrow.. cheers for the offers of who has them.. but i'm gonna see how much they'll cost from the garage first.. i'm no mechanic so would have to get them fitted then.. and this place usually does free fitting for us so might just balance out.. plus i'm working every day of the week from 7am to 11pm so wouldn't have time to meet up..

You'd change the shocks yourself bud, just get a loan of some spring clamps. Then all you need is €180 for the Toyota ones, I've done the shocks on a couple of cars and the hardest part is trying to open some of the bolts that are stuck. There's not much to it really.

yea front ones are roughly 30 - 50 euro cheaper each than rear ones apparently.. got them fitted for €260 in the end so i'm happy. saves me having to do any work :D
