Rear Ended 85 300TD

1985 300TD 296k mi.

On Sunday I was rearended by a minivan. Fortunatley I saw it coming and was able to at least keep from eating the car in from of me.

The only visible damage is a crack in the center of the rear bumper. I havent had time to crawl under the car and look at the body so something may be bent.

When replacing the bumper will both bumper and shocks have to be changed? One piece?

Any other advice is welcome. I'm planning on doing the work myself once I get all the necessary parts/estimate and Insurance $$$.

Thanks for your time.

Just find a used assembly at a wrecking yard, and if your car is anything like the 124's, it should be about a one hour job, max.
