    Default Shock absorber

    Hi all, I just have my car MOT tested and failed on shock observer fluid leak nearside rear. I was looking for a genuine one to buy and came across this: http://www.vauxhallsuperstore.co.uk/...P%7CS_93189040

    Any advice?

    Thanks in advance.

    Not thought of coilovers? Btw if 1 is bust chances are other will go soon as they had same amount of wear, change pair maybe?

    Would they not have included it in advisory info if other side was as bad?
    The mechanic just said Vauxhall would be around £300 so to look for on ebay .. and vauxhallsuperstore sell the same one linked above for £118 but £95 on their website

    I had the same as this on both my front suspension and I ended up buying coilovers instead of genuine suspension again!😆

    That is an ok price but also try emailing http://www.autovaux.co.uk/

    Ignore the comments about upgrading - needless expense unless tracking the car.
