Default Tailgate shocks.....

Does your tailgate have to be propped open with a stick. If it does check out ebay item#2445324551.

'spensive

German, Swedish & French do them for about a tenner each.
BTW, anyone suffering from weak boot props, get them replaced immediately.

It's very painful when a C900 boot loaded with whaletail comes down on you. You get a sharp bit in the base of your back and the remainder above your knees ... it hurts ... ops:

I just checked the GSF website, they are not a tenner, they are 12.95 + delivery @3.50 + VAT, 19.53 = total price for one.

Cost from PFS including VAT is 13.00, plus delivery at 2.64 including VAT = total price of 15.64

Savings of nearly 4.00

T'was when I got mine, albeit just over a year ago, and I avoided P&P because I drive past one of their outlets every work day.

I stand corrected. PFS rule :wink:

[OT, I never liked it when GSF added the French. "German & Swedish" had a certain ring to it. LOL]

Got mine from GSF too, (before PSF started selling!), and DaveB can vouch for how heavy a tailgate is cos I got him to hold mine for a while And it did land on my back after a strong wind gust. Not nice

I've had a couple of bits from the GSF in my towmn, but not much cos they aren't that cheap!
