    Replace the lot, you can get good kits(not ebay) for about 300 for the lot + fitting, if ones gone the rest's not far away.. do it right, do it once.

    normaly i would, but at this time , i just want to get it through the mot with the cheapest possible outlay, how much would a standard set cost to do the lot, is there any "how to's" on the web so i can have a step by step guide ??

    cheers

    mine failed on one of the front rear lower one if that makes sense, part was around 45 - 50 mate charged 15 to fit, much easier on a ramp

    Go back to the testing station and ask them which one they should have really put it down but often they cant be bothered .
