Oh pants - MoT failure - Please assist!

Hello all,

My mighty V6 failed its MoT today
I am therefore in need of
a set of new front discs and pads.

A pair of front suspension legs.

Now depending on cost I may go for the full kit on the shocks with springs.

Need idea on good quality manufacturers and appropriate costs of shocks, shock and spring kits, discs and pads!

Have very little cash as usual!

a pair of front shocks (std) should cost you about 110-120 quid inc vat.

AO do a G&M suspension kit for about 290 inc vat, which is all 4 shocks and lowering springs.

front discs? prolly about 60 quid for the pair from a motor factors and i'd guess at 25-30 for the pads.

Well that's the prices up here anyways

hope this is of some use.

Okay - CAS my local motor factor has quoted
48.21 each for Monroe suspension legs.

77.79 for a pair of discs and from 28.39 to 34.31 for pads.

Anyone know which pads I need as the book says 3 diferent types. I know I have warning light sensors in mine. But little else!
