    Damn, really? Sounds pretty straight forward (famous last words!)

    Advice/opinions on shocks to get and where to get them then please. Cost IS a factor after just having to replace my alternator today.

    I did mine in the summer, and I'm an idiot where such matters are concerned - so you should be fine!

    You'll need a E18 and E20 torx socket to get the bolts undone.

    There's a HOW2 on here as well.

    The HOW2 for the Signum also has some pics, but the Torx socket size is wrong for one of the bolts. As I said at the start, E18 and E20, not E20 for both bolts.

    If you haven't got any, you can get a set for around £10 to £11 (inc. delivery) from Ebay. The ones I bought even came with a lifetime guarantee (Silverline make).
