mk2 rear Shock Absorber mounting type?

Recommended Posts

Need to replace both rear shock absorbers on my mk2 hatchback. I have seen different types of mounting e.g. bottom eye, top pin OR bottom eye, top eye. Does anyone know what mounting is has? Also is it good practice to replace the shock mounting strut while I'm at it. Many thanks

It IS considered sensible to replace the top mount when replacing a shock, as it makes up a small part cost wise compared to the overall labour and cost of a decent quality shock.  Not sure on the mounting method.

It's practically 2 bolts at the top and one at the bottom takes 5 - 10 minutes to replace them.
