i got an 1987 Sterling 825s same chassis as the legend... I am wondering where you guys get your shocks from here in the US... it is kind of getting to be a pain in the ass talkin to all the dudes over in the UK who can identify with the salesman that they have a sterling without questions being asked... I dropped my sterling wid legend springs from intrax... thing is my car was equipped wid self-leveling rears.. i need new rear shocks so the **** things dont jack up my ride height in the rear cause it loooks ****in terrible... who makes rear shocks at a decent price? please send links... and prices...

Need New shocks not stock ones

I need different shocks for my 825s i do not want the stock ones which are self-leveling... are either of your sterling 5 speeds??? or the 90 legend you used??

There are a couple of things you can do - first try Midas muffler they can probably get you shocks that are not self leveling without much trouble.

Second, look up a site call British Atlantic - they have a lot of Sterling parts available. There's also a place called Post Oak Motors (I think) that's out of Texas.

I'd also recommend that you go to Yahoo Groups and join the Rover 800 mailing list. It's mostly a bunch of Brits, but there's probably a couple dozen of US Sterling owners too. The good news is that virtually everything you'd need can be had from these folks both advice and hardware that they are willing to ship. The bad news is that shipping from the UK can be pretty expensive. It's a great knowledgeable crowd though and they are extremely helpful. I've gotten some good advice and hard to find parts from contacts on the site.

BTW, I've got a 91 827Si.

Midas muffler knows shocks for Legends and Sterlings. I'd guess that most of the local auto parts stores do as well. You could also try shox.com.
