if u have Monroe agent, simply phone them with your veh details, for a quote, i found then out here to be far cheaper, and they are a pretty durable product, bit firm in ride though im told.
Thanks very much for the fast reply.

Is it better to replace as a pair or just do the one and then wait until the other goes?

That could happen tomorrow or in 6 months time so I don't know what to do. Would prefer to just change the one that needs replacing but would like an opinion.

I'll check for a Monroe agent in Newport/Cardiff & surrounding area,

scenic shocks

when mine broke, it was of course the left one, thats the one that takes the pounding from the edge of the road, but we were away on holliday and miles from a renault garage, so had to get it fixed in the country garage, the only one we could source was a second hand unit, which cost me more than a new one, so i only did the one. but normally i would replace them as a set, i beleive Monroe are better, but stiffer in ride, i see earlier in this thread there is a price for the monroe and ordering code, not a dificult job to do , but you need axle stands and a good jack, and ring spanners.

Thanks for the tips here - just replaced both shocks as rear pax side has snapped. The job was easy, took about 40 mins to do both so save yourself a few quid!

My spark plug socket was a perfect fit for both bolts so you may not need to buy an extra socket...

I bought monroes which should be very good replacements.

Shocks prices

Hi all.

If you are supposed to replace shocks in pairs.
Why are they sold and priced as singles?
