Hi Folks

Need some help.

My ctdi sport failed its mot yesterday due to leak in a front shock absorber. None of the parts people could get hold of a quote for me and they feared that the front shocks for the Sport were dealer only parts?

Any help please? I need the mot sorting and ideally, I dont want to paying out £50+ more from stealer dealers!

many thanks

I'm led to believe Koni (FSD) front shocks butcher and recycle the original Honda item.

Only the piston and insert are new, at the front end, at least.
