Any tips/tricks on how to make them functional again? Or should I just looks for some used ones? I am too chea..... frugal to buy new ones.
Not sure what kind of shocks you have, but if they're Konis they're rebuildable. You just buy yourself a kit. Crack them open with pin spanners, replace the rubber bits and oil, and put them back together.
