Hey guys
Went to pedders today to get my suspension check as there are many knocks and noises. Pedders pretty much told me that the most of the bushes are buggered and need to be replace (which is what i expected), as well as a new steering rack, and need new rear shockies. I was expecting it to be fairly expensive but the total price came to $1500 including labour. Is this too much? Should i get another quote?

go to a kmart and get a free safety check done, pedders will always sell you more than whats required, and kmart have a policy of beating other quotes if you need all that pedders quoted

i heard stories too, then i started working for them, they are a lot better than all the s**t that gets said about them, plus a full 12 month australia wide waranty on all work done, can't complain about that, but with what i said get a free safety check done and compair it to the pedders one, i bet pedders are trying to sell s**t thats not in any required
