Struts

Post by Vanny » Tue Sep 06, 2005 6:53 pm

Hi folks, need ideally a set of struts for Matts new shinny car, there long since past it and no amount of lubing will help these (they stick all over in the rain and rattle in the cold!)!

Anyone have any uber cheap and useable spares, or even just a single one!


Really needs to be close to northwest (liverpool/manchester/fleetwood all good!)

Yes Vanny, we do know someone who has a spare strut! Condition `unknown` BUT I believe our mutual (and former BX estate owning) friend said it was working fine when removed from his last BX.
Give me a call, p.m or e-mail me or something when you`re ready mate.

A company called Eldridge Motors are breaking a TZD and have a pair of nearly new struts on offer. Look them up on e-Bay, but if you have trouble come back to me.

I think these are the same people I asked for a quote for some bits. I`d have been better off asking Citroen as their prices were astronomical. Probably still worth a try though.
I have both struts here in my garage should you need.

Basically i've been running the liverpool university canoe club (trips) and have to design the rear end of a race car by christmas! so as you can imagine i've been a little bit busy!

Then to add insult to stress my house was broken into yesterday and my laptop stolen giving me a whole world of crap to have to sort out.

But i'll le tyou know when i get a chance at it :D
