VT S2 wagon Berlina
Hi all.
Been looking and cant find a how-to for replacing the rear shocks in a wagon.
Is it reccomended to do the springs as well.
Not alot of funds at the moment.
Rear shocks are leaking.
What price should I pay ?

Thanks
Darren

To replace the rears you undo the plate that attaches the shock to the body then remove the bolt from the bottom of the shock to the trailing arm. Once all out you change the plate over to the new shock and bolt straight back in.
