ok I've started stripping the rear suspension on my TQS to rebush it, but I've found that the upper shock/spring mount(the metal can thingy (part number 8D0512341/2)) has quite a bit of rust on it ie some non standard holes. LOL.
Question is : should I just go and buy a new pair(approx £220 from dealers) or is a decent non rusty secondhand set a possibility considering the age of these cars now? Plus, what sort of price do you think I should pay for a used set?
TBH I'm tempted to go for new, means they should last another 12 years, and I wouldn't have to do any work to them before fitting etc. Route of least resistance and all that.
Any opinions/help greatly appreciated.
