    unless it's an estate it's highly unlikely....

    oh, and always replace them in axle pairs..a must with all suspension and brake components

    Make sure you replace them in pairs!

    Rears are very easy with the right spanners. Plenty of threads on here about removal. Would take 20 mins max each one.
