    Default how2 required!

    Hey guys want to get my hands dirty again, want to fit some new shocks to the back end of the 1.9cdti. Believe its only 2 bolts and I would like to fit them myself cos this bleeding credit crunch is ****ing me right off!!!!

    Is it an easy job should I just jack it up and have a look, done a bit of work on a cav before so not a complete novice!!
