    Default Vec rear Shock Absorbers

    Hi all
    apologies if this has been covered previously, but I have a question.
    A colleague has had one rear shock replaced under warranty on an 04 estate (mileage about 21k). I have always replaced them in pairs. Is this a new penny pinching initiative from VX or can you get away with it.

    cheers

    Manufacturers state that they should be replaced in axle pairs.. he should push them to change the other one as well...

    Yep, go back and kick some behinds!!

    I had a rear Irmscher shock develop a small leak earlier this year - got both sides replaced with no fuss. I raised the point (about whether Vx would do the pair) when it went in. They checked and said not a problem.

    Thanks everyone,
    You have confirmed what I thought.
    I have called my friend and he assures me that he will visit said dealer tommorow with both his Rotweilers in the back !

    Cheers.
