    Anyone know if you have to get access to the rear shock top mount from inside the car to remove it or can it be done from outside?

    I ash because i've just gone and fitted the boot build and it takes up the whole boot and it was a bugger to fit and i didn't think about suspesion! doh
    My rear shocks are really spongy but not leaking 2-3 bounces. So i'm thinking of new shocks.

    Well for those of u interested i've changed the rear shocks myself, quite, well very easy!
    about an hour each side, 2 13mm bolts on underside of wheel arch and 16mm bolt on arm, thats it!

    no access to boot needed, i replaced em with sum awesum gas struts! better be at £50 each, now they r changed i didn't realise how bad my old ones were, they were fooked.

    No gas in em at all! bounced all over the road!
