Strut Pricing/Install Questions
The struts on my car are starting to go. Time for 4 new ones. I wanted to get the KYB's, or at least some Monroe Reflex's.
Sweet Jesus! My mechanic quoted me $1100 CDN for the KYB's installed and $1000 for the Monroe's. Hell, even a set of cheapo struts would be $800 installed.
1) For those who have looked, where is the best online price for those shocks? I've looked at Tirerack, but the KYB's there come close to what I am paying for them here thru my mechanic($700 CDN)
For those Canadians here, have any of you bought those struts locally in Canada for a good price? Where?
2) Why is the price so high for even shitty cheapo shocks and install? This is a cash deal I have with my mechanic, so I am getting a good discount already, but $800-1100 is so high. Hell, I paid $400 to change the shocks on my truck. What makes the install on an Intrepid so hard?
3) For those with no skills like myself, what have you paid(in CDN or US $$) to have all 4 struts replaced?
