    Well, would you buy 2nd hand suspension?

    Potential of not knowing what you get or possible bargain?

    I have done in the past with no problems.

    It's a risk though. Pay your money and take your chances...

    Nope never-besides new isn't too dear With 2nd hand you don't know what you are getting-how they've been treated or what condition they're in and how long they'll last.

    If your thinking you're gonna get a bargain, really cheap, then it's worth a punt imo. If it's sh*t, then that's your luck..
