Howdy folks...

Hows things?

Just a quick one. My old faithfull Koni's, on my old Cruiser, are about 10 years old with one re-oil/ service. I've just bought a replacement Cruiser with run of the mill shocks. Do i buy new ones or are the Koni's still worth reservicing & keeping? I know that, like last time, that a reservice, does wonders but how long can you do that for?

Like you Ro my Koni's have done 290,000km's with one rebuild being fitted to 3 different cars. I will probably sell them & buy new shocks next time around as despite the fact they still work OK, there surely must be some metal fatigue going on down there & I've more than got my moneys worth already.

WOW,stupid me. Just got a new Tvan and also being a bit paranoid have also got a spare pare of shocks(Koni),maybe not needed?
