I need to replace the rear shock absorbers on my wifes 2011 Corsa D (1.2i 16V), looking around the prices seem to vary wildly so really looking to some advise on what to go for. It's just stock and used for town driving, nothing exciting!
(Also, replace the pair, or just the leaking one?)
Eurocarparts has Anschler for £74.99 each
Ebay has Continental Direct ones for £24.14 (http://r.ebay.com/JJTLw6)
Mister Auto has various, from Bolk at £15.20 up to Bilstein at £59.30
So, do you get what you pay for? They are all gas pressure shocks, all compatible and all appear similar construction, so if they're not being hammered on tracks, etc and used as second car/for my wife to get to and from work, do I go middle diddle?
