Had mine replaced recently with an OME and am very happy with it (had the rest of the suspension replaced with OME at the same time, also really satisfied with the result).

Hi Folks

Anyone bought a Nissan replacement steering damper for a GU lately? Want to know what I can expect to pay after the lock down. Pity I didn't plan ahead and source before so that I would have some extra time to fit it...

Duncan, consider getting a Terrain Tamer from Marino 4x4 here on the forum?

Auzzie brand.

They specialize in replacement components. All sorts of stuff like hose kits, fan belt kits, wheel bearing kits and so forth. Complete kits with bearings, seals and all the replacement bits neatly packed in a re-usable clear-top zippered bag which is great for keeping stuff in your drawers, and all to OEM quality.

Marinus is the local agent.
