I fitted some KYB gas shocks as direct replacements on the rear, four stubborn bolts but done! The shocks that came off was nearside (mist) but pushed down on this and it just 'stopped' that would have been what the chaotic swing to the side would have been and then it started to leak so just in time and was advisory last oct. Offside, slightly misty but pushed down and slow repositioned so not faulty yet but either way = bin.
Took for a test, smooth and no more ride chaos, fairly easy job!
Noticed the bush that it sits on the suspension arm to be not great but either end fine. It hasn't been polybushed as it would seem a lot of work. Q. Do you need a press machine to pop these out? How do you replace them?
