    Hi Damian,

    Ages ago I bought this shock and spring combo from you (~2010 i think). I have done 110k since then, the front shocks have been replaced once (so they've done ~55K) but all the other components have done 110k

    I am looking at replacing all the shocks because they're knackered; definitely the rear

    Question: The springs to my knowledge are fine but after 110k should they be replaced as a matter of course or only if their damaged?

    Cheers,
    Alex

    Evening,

    Thank you for your post.

    If you're changing everything else, me personally, I'd also change the rear springs.

    Only the front shocks have been replaced since 2010. Springs, front and back, have done 110k

    Would you change front and rear springs given the mileage?

    I'd say change both the front and rear springs at that mileage then.
