2008 sport HSE 4.4 needs shocks. Do i need to change bags also? Looking at parts and you tube some say unplug electrical connector how do i know which shock or strut i need. And what are your recommendations? Rover has 180k on it and i am probably going to trade her in in the near future.

It’s possible to separate the bag from the shock but it’s far more work than it’s worth, and when I went down this road with my RRS I couldn’t even find replacement shocks alone... only replacement bags or the entire unit.

after comparing the amount of work (and margin for error) of disassembling the strut/bag assembly to replacing the entire unit, I decided it made far more sense to trade more money for less time/risk. Your mileage may vary, and if you’re trading it in, it may the worthwhile anyway.

are you getting suspension warnings, or just an unpleasant ride?
