Guy looked at it and the shock absorber had split in 2 .. ...... yikes

Only replaced the one but he did check the other and said that was fine.

Thanks again for the advice
No problem.

I've replaced a few shocks on the rear of Renaults with that style of suspension on them.I think it's the ridiculous angle that they're supposed to work at!.I have changed them on Lag 1's,Scenics and normal Meganes in the recent past.I think Renault have got they're calculations wrong somewhere as Peugeot use a similar design of rear suspension on many of their models,and I have never changed a shocker on one of them before,ever!.

Glad to here your all sorted.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
