    changing rear shocks

    At my last service i was told that my rear shocks had started to weep but were not in desperate need if changing. im lookin at lowering the car in the future but was wondering what the score would be on fitting after market shortened shocks with the original springs and front dampers to maybe spread the cost out a little. Would i have any major problems with doing this?

    As above : easy job to do and can't see any problems - look in the 'how-to's' for all the gen.

    You need Torx scokets E18 and E20 to get the nuts off - and re torque them to 90Nm on the top and 110Nm on the bottom
