Default Stuck in WA

Hey guys anyone on here from Albany and have a spare 99-03 outback rear shock? Have just had one collapse, waiting for the tow truck. Having a look at wreckers in the area but no luck until tomorrow. Hopefully the subaru dealer has one in stock and we are back on the road tomorrow.

Shock from the wreckers in and back on the road. Rear shocks on the outbacks are pretty average design. Spring perch is not even welded on

Custom set of konis where installed. Work fantastically. Biggest issue when talking to my suspension guy was bump stops. When the car is lifted they have to be extended too. No more issues :D
