    They have already agreed to fit them, what do you mean by aftermarket the jewellery for the top mount?

    I suspect not available as separate parts but only comes with original Smart shocks.

    If you can't get these parts what would be the point of selling the shocks?

    Will they not be able to reuse the parts that came with the original shocks?

    Probably depends what condition they are in. If steel they may be rusted to hell.

    Sent the main dealer a couple of emails. Best to let them know about this before they take on the work.

    I've had a reply from the main dealer they say "providing the shock absorbers are a straight swap and no modifications are required to fit them, then the quote I gave you previously is the same."
