    Default rear suspension

    Hi all my rear suspension is really annoying me, dont know whats wrong with it but when i hit a bump on the left hand side feels like the car bounces, quite dangerous whilst going round corners. Any ideas?

    Probably leaky shocks. I had the same, have a look under the rear and if they are oily you need new ones.

    Check them or get them checked first then take it from there. You don't want to be paying out for nothing.

    There are quite a few variations of shock absorber so if you go to a dealer you will need to give your spec details to the parts counter, Also bear in mind that London prices are dearer. I paid £70.00 a piece inc vat they come with new threadlock bolts but if they go again I’ll get Monroe's or equivalent

    If you are mechanically minded you can do it yourself takes about 20 mins each side hardest bit is jacking the car up to access the the top torx bolt in the wheelarch.
