Hi all.

I have a question regarding the VZ factory shocks.. When should they start leaking?

I have a 2005 VZ, which is in for a service and I've been told that one of the rear shocks is leaking.

It's done 65K klms and Im wondering if thats normal for shockies to start leaking?

If it is, is it worthwhile getting all 4 replaced at the same time. ?

Chers
-Mike

Hrmm.. I took my SV6 in for it's 60K service last week, and they told me the same thing, that my shocks are leaking, and need replacing soon.

Shock Absorbers usually have a servicable life of around 50,000-60,000km. Give u an idea both my rear shocks had spat the dummy at 50,000k & its best to replace them in pairs.

Replaced my shocks with Monroe GT Sport all round (very firm in the rear). This was after the rears failed.
Of course Holden neglected to tell me the rears were gone (instant oversteer). Perhaps because they were still under warranty or they didn't bother to look.
Don't get me started on their service ethics......my bloods beginning to boil!
I better lie down.
