The rear seldom ever give a problem unless badly abused with overloading. It's always the front that sag and take a hammering, especially when there's a heavy integrated bumper and winch.

Any second hand units will probably already have sagged and even new ones are known to suffer the same fate with time.

"Re-tensioning" doesn't work, period. It's a waste of time and resources. Cold reshaping on the other hand has hugely improved results but it's a tedious task unless you have access to an hydraulic press.

Replacing with after market units is the path of least resistance / drama but of course there's the cost of replacement which can be offset by the absence of all the extra work and time as well as peace of mind.

Now that I've put the cart squarely in front of the horse, what I should have first asked is what is your reason for wanting to replace your units .... have they sagged?

I recently bought Camil coil over shocks in Pretoria after some research and my cousin reassuring me that if I was unhappy with them he would buy them off me.I am so far happy with them.
