Mondeo mk3 tdci Zetec S suspension advice

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've got a rear squeaky shock absorber that sits lower than the opposite side when it's jack up. I believe it needs replacing, so i thought while i'm at it i should replace the rear opposite side shock and both the springs as the front two went in Jan (and the cars on 75000 mile). 
I've been looking into replacement shocks and keep seeing "Not suitable for sports suspension" and i can't seem to find a definate answer it the zetec s has sport suspension.
So i've got a few questions:
1) is the suspension on a tdci zetec s standard and will stardard shocks (such as http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/251628162712?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT or http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/200933191443?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT) fit?
2) I've been reading alot that Eibach 40mm lowering springs on standard dampers are a really good upgrade for handling and keep the ride comfort. Anyone tired this/ heard anything different?
3) do you need spring compressors when changing them? 

It's probably worth mentioning it's a hatchback late 03 reg so it's post face lift.
Thanks in advance!
