xtrail shock absorbers
So i had a P2 service done on the x-trail today(made the stealers fight and got it down to £195). Everything was good, had that nice tight after service ride home, Always nice to feel where ur money has gone. The only thing they pointed out was that although the shock absorbers are ok, the gaiters on all 4 have spilt and i should look into replacing them.
Its a 7 year old car, and i have just spent the summer on some rougher roads in scandinavia, so doesn't surprise me, but the quote of £518.12 was a bit of a body blow. i have no money for that at the moment, but how soon should i look into getting it done? Will go round other places and get quotes also of course. But with just everyday surburban road use, will it become a problem soon?
Also, anyone got any suggestion on any other makes/types of shock aabsorber, if i am gonna pay out, then i wanna get the best for my money!
