Replacing Rear Shocks

06 May 2013 - 10:29 AM

has anyone replaced their rear shocks themselfs? got a quote from a garage for £130 a side which seems very excessive as the rears are stand alone and theres only two bolts holding it.


Are there any guides available? might have a go myself

Strut Mount Front Near Side

31 January 2013 - 01:24 PM

Just had my car serviced and the garage advised i needed my top strut mount replacing.

Do i need this doing ASAP? it only rattles at low speed on a full left hand lock, normal driving conditions it doesnt seem to make a sound.

When i bought the car i noticed it looked like someone had been taking the top mount off recently (my guess is to bodge it with grease) and it looked crossthreaded.

The car had a full MOT when i bought it with no advisories.

What can i expect to pay for a replacement?

Poor Mpg?

i'm getting like 37mpg is this normal? my car is a 2004 fusion 2 1.4 Duratec.

Most of my driving its dual carridgeways and i'm frugal with the throttle.
