    tell me about it i got quoted 400 aud for the struts a pair and 330 AUD for the rear shocks ](*,) , to buy em from the states I could porbably get all 4 of em for 400 AUD delivered

    to rub salt into the wound

    i thinks thier 70 US esch for the struts about AUD 90 so 180 par


    55 for the shocks each about 71 AUD each 142 a pair

    plus delivery

    Just got my first quote...... £141 per pair plus postage! Considering that the UK exchange rate to the USD is nearly $2 to £1, the shocks are half price if ordered from the USA. But then shipping and import taxes nail you. Oh well, you've just gotta bend down and take it up the tail pipe I guess ](*,)

    On the bright side, I did pay US prices for my lift kit \:D/
