    1.6 8v X16SZR Just Failed Mot Rear Shocks

    Hi everyone,

    my cars just failed its mot on excessively worn bush on the offside rear shock absorber and an excessively corroded front offside brake pipe.

    Was just wandering whats the cheapest way of sorting the shocks out? Complete replacement? Anyone had any quotes?? Myns a hatchback does that mean its hydraulic only my haynes manual talks about estates having a gas operated one.

    Thanks for any help.

    shocks are quiet cheap mate, but if your going to replace it do both rears, and brake pipes are made at garages cost pennys really
