not thought about doing it yourself? although their prices are cheap enough not to be bothered...

I've just changed jobs so not able to do it in works time and dont really have the space to do it at home, plus with something like forks I think it's better to let an expert have a go. I'm looking at getting a second set possibly and then I'd have a go myself on the spare set.

+1 for Kais mate.

Seals are super easy though. The bushes are much harder or shuttle replacement or even new stancions as you have to peen the ends which is worrying.
