New shocks

After been driven by over 190 thousand kilometres, the right from shock was knocking when turning left and when driving on badly paved roads. It could only be the shocks the origin of the noises since there seemed to be no apparent wear in any other suspension/steering components, so, new shocks were bought (Kayaba Excel-G) to retire the OEM ones.
Although the rear shocks were still capable of keeping up to the job for some more time, the ones in the front end were in pretty bad shape, the right front one had some very noticeable wear in the piston (hence the noise), opted for replacing all four shocks at this time, with the respective bushings.
The four shocks and bushings costed me 245.51€... and driving silence settled in again.
