Right username, wrong forum! But yes, I do have a set that are on eBayat the moment.

I would be prepared to sell them off eBay, but ONLY if there are no bids as it would not be fair to the bidder.

2 auctions, 1 strut in each one. Why, are you after one as well?

I have none left! I've just used the last decent used strut on the 16v that replaced the utterly shite "brand new" strut from Citroen that was creaky, sticky and passed a lot of fluid.
The OS strut on the TD is passing lots of fluid and I'm not convinced by plaiedes struts.
Having BX's in traffic and no spare struts worries me, especially as they aint easy to find anymore, same goes for rear struts, I have none left at all that are any good... so yeah, I'll have a bid on both and see how it goes!

I just put my last good rear cylinder, complete with new bellows, on K39.
I have 2 more porous ones, one of which I've opened up the corroded holes. I did this some years ago and welded them up using TIG. I don't presently have access to a TIG set though.

It works because I did one before, put a bolt right through it to blank the ends and filled it with water to avoid any possible distortion, so it's a way to go when they run out.
