    Default R/N/S shock on my Vec C estate gone!!

    Just had a great holiday in France, got back and noticed a nice pool of fluid on the driveway, had a look and looks like the R/N/S shock is leaking, great!!

    I have had a look on here and found the How 2 so may have a go myself rather than paying through the nose to a garage, I had a look at Europarts but can't find the rears.

    Can anyone help my out with somewhere they have used recently price wise and also (not being too mechanically minded) does the How 2 apply to both the saloon and estate?


    Thanks

    I have the Vec C Design estate, are these ok for that? Is there really any difference between these and the performance ones?

    I believe they should be OK, as the design isn't lowered (like the SRi), but would get a second opinion

    I'm sure someone with more knowledge will be along shortly.
