Bloody long title for a thread.

I have a C10 thats been lowered before, a long time ago with heated coils etc.

This is it:

Been chatting to V8Jimmy in Scotland about it this morning on the phone.

I want to replace shocks and springs all the way around when I redo the truck.

Currently Brothers in the USA have a half priced sale.

However, in real terms, including a 24.5% import duty etc. The real price fitted to the truck will be around £500.00 if my calculations are correct.

QUESTION: Does anyone know if one can source a replacement set of springs and shocks in the UK for sensible money?

Rian, I have used VW type 4 springs with a coil removed on the rear of the 60 I have here. I had to make location spigots though so the spring won't come out.
The rear shocks are heavy duty Monroes that I had in stock from something else. The front is dropped on LMC springs...not low enough. I,m looking into VW springs for that too.

Thanks guys.

Andy, I will give him a ring.

Currently investigating Brothers' half price sale and buying a double order to save a bit on courier/postage.
