Depends what parts you need? Shop around for prices but maybe wise not to buy the cheapest or "copy" part if you can afford it. Moss Europe is another supplier or try your local car spares shop, if they are "older" gentlemen they are usually more than happy to source a part for you and you get to save on postage costs too.

You should find what your after using either of these options you have suggested.

If you're not a purist and just want your car through an MOT then eBay or a motor factors for shocks will be fine. If you want close to original equipment or something a little better, go to places like Minispares.

Thanks Steve, I think at this stage it's a case of getting the mot and take it from there...
