2011 1.4TDCi rear shock replacement

Recommended Posts

Morning all

The Pepsi cans (kids pet name for it) has just been in for its first service under my ownership at the local Parks Ford dealer where i bought it, so I've done 12K in it since February so bought with 19K now on 31K.

They have suggested that both rear shocks need replacing on it and have quoted (sit down) £169 fitted per side!! £338 to fit supply and fit two rear shocks!!!!! anyway when i stopped laughing I've pointed out to them the car is still under their "All parts and labor no quibble one year warranty" and she looked raging but was quick to point out the high mileage in this period, i Digress.....

My question being what kind of shocks are peopling using for replacements? pattern parts/ ford parts etc? i'm considering fitting coil overs as the handling a bit boaty, any recommendations on a reasonable priced set?
