    My 2003 sport wagon has 109000 miles. Mostly driven on smooth flat roads of south west Florida.

    If I decide to change Shocks do I need to change all four, or can I just change the fronts and wait to change the rears?

    It's up to you.

    Change what's worn out, but at least change out in pairs (front or rear). They tend to deteriorate at different rates, so I think most of us change a pair at a time. There is no duplicated work to save except putting the car on a lift.

    I also live in Southwest florida and drive a 2003 325 with 40K miles.

    Could you tell me about what mileage you had to replace brakes? and did you replace rotors also when you did the job?

    My car has a manul transmission.

    Thanks
