    Nah Jezz. Did front last weekend mate, just needed to get on with back. 1st one was a pain as didnt really know what I was doin. 2nd took 20 mins if that. Easy job when yer know how. Prob do both in 45 mins. Front 2 a little more difficult as you need spring compressors. Rear 2 was a matter of removin a bolt and removing and replacing spring. Jobs a goodun.

    That makes more sense - I did mine a few weeks ago and certainly took more than 2 hours for all four, so I was wondering if I was a bit slow compared to you... lol

    Nah, 1st in both cases was a bit difficult but 2nd so much easier. Had a bit of a rattle at the back and thought it may be the springs. Seems a common fault this rattle. Anyway, the front nearside spring went a week ago so had to change. Thought I may as well do em all. Found the nearside rear one broken as well. Still got this annoying rattle though. Only really when goin over rough ground or pain in the arse bumps in the road. Think it maybe the exhaust as all rubbers seem to be a bit soft.
    Thought I would get all jobs done and give it a service.
    One to do though. Seems another common fault. Front passenger door shows as open when closed. Everytime yer take off it gives yer that annoying sound to tell yer that the door is open.....
