    Default rear shockers

    Hi all.
    apologise if the following makes me sound really silly!
    i am going to attempt to renew my rear shocks on2.2dtisxi
    are the bolts easy to spot and unscrew? is it adviseable to change the bolts or will i get away with reusing the old and does anyone have any ideas which is the best make of shock to get.
    many thanks
    graham

    You will need Torx Sockets iirc, top and bottom both different sizes too.

    Very easy job to do though.

    hi mate, just put b4's on mine, very easy!!, take wheel off, following the shocker up vertically in the wheel arch you'll find a bolt undo this, follow the shocker back down you'll find the second bolt undo this! riggle the shocker from up behind the arch and your done!!. as for the replacments if you go with b4's, i found the cheapest £68.88 inc free delivery

    hope this helps!!!!
