Hi everybody,

I have just bought a pair of upgraded rear springs for my laguna 2 sports tourer ... i have not got a workshop manual .. can someone tell me how to change them over .. do i need spring compressors and does the rear springs have the shocks incorporated inside them . Or will i have to take it to a garage ....

Mant thanks in advance ..... chakota ;)

Hi Again Donald,

Just sneaked over to a rival forum and picked up this ..

Springs are easy to replace, but you must drop both shock absorbers. Jack car, axle stand it both sills, then use trolley jack to hold axle while you undo shocks, then slowly lower jack below fixing point for shocks. Bung in springs, jack axle back up, replace shocks and bolt em in. But check bolts are torqued to correct perssure as overtightening will cause them to break and shock will drop.
:d :d :d
