    rear spring's

    hi everyone, went outside tonight to pull me car onto the drive and when i started reversing i heard two real loud bangs like i had hit a car or something but i knew it was my springs going as i have read bout it on here before. Wot i wanna know is roughly how much is it for a new set of springs and are they easy enough to do, i know my way round a car ok but dont really wanna be messing round with it if i have to compress the springs as i dont have the clamps to do this, thanks

    u don't need spring compressor for the rear just raise the back remove the wheels , remove shock lower mounting bolt , disconnect the hand brake cables from the calipers lower the rear axle and pull the springs out then replace with the new ones ( use some grease to ease the rubbers out from the old springs and reuse them)
