Hey guys,

Newbie here, but i've just bought an Ed classic, and the shocks need replacing. Question 1: Is it simply a matter of unbolting them at the top, pulling them out and then bolting in new ones? question 2: what sort of price should i expect to pay for a set of decent shocks? (koni etc). If im going to put in new shocks i may as well put in good ones i think.

anyway, thanks for your help guys.

Gazza.

Don't have to buy Koni to get 'good' shocks.. KYB are good as well at a fraction of the price. Changing shocks is pretty easy, best you have a service manual or someone to give you a hand when you're going to do it however.
