You got all the gaskets and nuts and bolts you are supposed to renew at the same time. I am going to be replacing my shocks and springs soon on the ///M and these have just cost me £50 on their own mind you also got the reinforcing plates for the rear top mounts so probably only half that really but still expensive. :(
