    Yeah , its bloody atrocious , IMO most possibly the worst road in Australia , I don't think its been graded since I last went up there in 1986 .

    The guys at 24-7 Autoparts in Broken Hill let me sort through their stock of shockers to find something close to fitting , I went around the back and was presented with 3 library size racks of shockers & muttered "oh ****" , luckily the 3rd box I opened was close enough

    More likely it bottomed not topped out that broke it looking by the dent in the end.

    Likely was too long.

    Is the new one shorter?

    As I posted about the shortest ones are F100 Dual I beam ,AFAIK only made by Koni and some USA firms. The Koni ones are cheaper than the usual Koni Eye watering prices.
