Seeking advice on rear shock replacement

Hi Gang,

My wife's car needs the rear shocks replaced (according to the stealership); I don't see any sign of leakage, but they told her they need to be replaced. They gave her a cost of $175 + 1.5 hours of work, that is per shock. So total around around $650+Tax (Canadian).

I have done some major work on my old 2000 Cherokee sport, and I get that the outlander is not quite as simple to work on (access, ease of removal, etc).

I found these on Amazon (first search): https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B009HU5H3Y/...=1CKLWGX4GZ2C9 which are a fit for her 2011 outlander, however it's not clear to me if there is a need to purchase anything additional to them (like any kind of bushings, accessories, bolts, etc... that will be required when changing these out).
>Hoping to get your advice on that.

Secondly, I didn't find any writeups on the replacement process, but found this youtube video, closest I could find to what I need:
.
>I don't know if this is the same on the Outlander or not, can't seem to find one for the actual Outlander.


Would appreciate some feedback from you all.

Thanks in advance!

I ended up replacing the rear shocks; it was actually very easy as they are not inside the springs on my model. The bolts at the top are "easily" accessible; I say easy because you don't have to remove all the trim from the rear inside of the vehicle, there are two covers you pop off and you have access to the 2 bolts that hold the assembly at the top. A car stand, and jack and some sockets are all you need to do the replacement, it's not hard and I was happily surprised at this fact.

For the record, this is what I bought:

2 x Monroe 37310 OESpectrum Rear Shock Absorber
2 x KYB SM5091 - Mount Kit (bushing kit)

Case closed!

Sorry no body answered I just joined today and I really could not give you any advice about that anyway. Thanks for following though on your own post to help others. I am just curious after replacing your rears do you notice a better weigh transfer at launch. I have been spinning front tires since 2007 when my Out XLS was new?

It's all good
This forum has little to no action, at least in this part. Doesn't look like too many people do their own repairs.
>Huge difference when coming from a Jeep forum.

I haven't noticed any difference and I rarely run in FWD because I've noticed no difference in consumption between FWD and AWD; in the winter I even lock the AWD.
The rears weren't toasted, one side was leaking so I decided to replace them both.
