Hi,

I was quoted $550 the other day for new suspension (shocks and struts) this is including labor. Is this a fair price?

Thanks.

Wow that's cheap! As labour alone would be around the $250 mark

Shocks and struts.

Thats a good price as youll be flat out buying the parts for under $300, then you are only getting charged $250 labour on top like mentioned. (Assuming the shockies are half decent)

Maybe try install the rear shocks yourself as you dont need a spring compressor then pay someone to install the struts, you might save a further $100 labour doing it that way :wink:
