    Hi Guys,

    Just wondering if any of you have ever had any coilovers refurbished / rebuilt or even bought spares.

    Basically I am wanting to swap my FK Coilovers across from my 325 TDS loon onto my Touring.
    I wouldn't be too fussed if they were the cheaper versions but these are the damping adjustable ones (bought secondhand a year ago, hence why I don't know their proper name..lol).

    Could do with a bit of a general tidy up, though more to the point the damping adjustment doesn't seem to work.
    I am generally happy with them, but obviously it would be a benefit to be able to make use of the damping adjustment.

    Any pointers as to where I might be able to get them refreshed and a rough indication of price would be great.

    Cheers.

    Hadn't even thought about the springs TBH, plasticoating (sp?) sounds like a good way of making them last longer though.

    Any other suggestions regarding the actual damper units guys ?
