Good shocks and prices?
2000 147 1.6 Twin-spark Lusso with 70K and original shocks!
I think I have got to the bottom of my handling problems, going to specialist to be sure and for the work.
1. When driving and accelerating, steering wheel straight. When coasting or braking, steering wheel goes to the left.
2. Creaking noise from front drivers side when I rock the car stationary.
3. When turning right, front left lifts up nicely to absorb the turn. then turn left, even a gentle motorway slip road, there is no give and a scary turn.
4. Braking test (as learned through my advanced driving!) the ABS locks on when suddenly dips, but not excessively, and throws me to the right.
Everything points to the front drivers shock IMHO.
If it is, what is a good price for stock shocks? Also, do I need all 4 changed, or is just the front pair okay? Tried shop4parts, they just have rears. Also, what should I be quoted for labour? Finally.... Worth getting wishbones etc changed, or is it fine to leave if just noisy and still functioning?
