Rear shocks misting advisory on MOT

Car (335D M-sport) is 5 years old, 85,000 miles. Anyone know what I should expect to pay for replacement of rear shocks?

Wondering if it's worth doing the fronts at the same time, they must be near the end of their life if the rears have gone.

Is it best to stick with O/E or could anyone recommend another make?

Thanks.

You pays your money and takes your choice. Eurocarparts supply OEM rears for 75 each and fronts for 97 (plus fitting of course - unless you DIY). I would replace all four at your mileage.

KONI FSDs are well respected on this forum, as are KONI Sports (yellows). Do a search - this topic has been debated long and hard on many occasions.

Thanks Phil. I did do a search, but that always seems to throw up mostly unrelated stuff.

I'll have a look into the Konis.

Just had some KSD's fitted-paired with a set of Eibach pro springs,to replace my Msport suspension.
Recognised as being cheaper and much better on all counts,than oem.
Here is my recent thread with some useful info...
