it all depends why the suspension was replaced, if it was just due to sag through age then totally fine helen is thinking about changing hers due to age and sag it happens to us all eventually lol mike has changed his and both their dandy's are fab however if it has been changed due to damage or worse an accident then i personally would be very wary Smile

You could always ask why, if it is because it seemed a bit low (sag)then you could be saving yourself some money and work............ I am replacing mine just because it looks a bit low, not because its causing problems. I just want it to be as good as it possibly can be. If it was me I would ask why and I would get my other half to take a look underneath just to check it's all okay and nothing else looks like it's been patched up.

New suspension is most likely due to normal wear and tear which could make it a good buy,the other thing to check is that the new suspension is of the braked sort un braked is a lot cheaper but you dont want that. affraid

New suspension is a bonus and saves the next owner about £300.The very fact they are advertising it has new suspension is a good thing and would move it up my list of possible buys Very Happy
