I've just changed the struts on my estate car, both felt soft when you pushed the front end down, and the spheres were soft enough, but the ride quality wasn't quite what it's supposed to be.

If I left the vehicle stood for a moment with the bonnet open, then pressed down on the front bumper with my knee whilst holding my hand on the top of each strut, I could feel them sticking, only slightly but enough to unbalance the ride.

Now with two good front struts on, I'm happy with it.

Are you anywhere near Buton on Trent? I have a radiator to pick up from there,

Could possibly "kill two birds with one stone" :o
