I have a 2000 Bora TDI 115SE with 110K on the clock

Rides like a pig, I imagine the whole suspension set up is shot and needs replacing, the engine is sweet and body fine, should I invest or get shut, any Ideas of the cost?

Thanks

you can do the suspension for cheap, maybe get a set of coilovers and thats sorted. if the engine is good and there is no other problems apart ffrom the suspension then you should keep it imo

Bushes ,dampers,top mounts, fitting, labour... surely it all adds up

Deffo not loweringtho, the roads in East Lancs are shocking.... no pun intended!

as said above can get shocks, springs and everything you asked for a good price, cant say how much exactly as I never bought all of them, have a look on the classifides mate [Y]

and to keep costs down fit it yourself

Ill have it off you if its going cheap.

Even to strip and replace everything suspension wise is less than a weekends work. Would be crazy not to fix it.

Not sure what the coilovers are like, they lower 30mm

I did all this on my GTI way back in 1992, it was a disaster

would standard shocks n springs be as cheap?

In that case you should just give it to me. [:D]
Coilovers are gash. Stay away.

Shocks and springs all day everyday.

Ebay is where its at my friend. EBAY!!
