Check wirh your local auto supply house. 08-22-2007 - I just bought a pair of front struts for my 1995 VW Cabrio and paid $59.95 each for them for a total of $132.11 including NC tax for the pair. This was at Advance Auto Parts in eastern North Carolina. Their catalog also showed Bilstein brand high performance struts for about $300.00 each! The ones I bought are probably produced by an OEM supplier, that is, it is produced as a stock replacement for the original struts that came with the car when new and probably to the same specifications. The price I paid is probably as low as can be found. I do not know if re-manufactured units are available.
I have NO idea!!!!!! ... do I????? Funny answer^As do most front wheel drive vehicles, the new VW Beetle has front struts and rear shocks.
Weak trunk struts on a 2003 VW Jetta will not allow the lid to properly stay open. To replace the struts unbolt the mounts holding them to the car and replace them.
i didnt even think u could
Yes. The new struts will throw off the camber; thus requiring an adjustment.
It has macpherson struts in the front and torsion springs at the rear.
If they are leaking, damaged, the car sits unlevel, or if after pushing down on the car the car bounces, they probably need replacing. Labor costs should be around $125 and the struts are about $100 each. A wheel alignment is recommended when replacing struts and runs about $60.
Some early 71' & 72' VW Super Beetles had flat windshields, later bugs had curved. Major changes were MacPherson struts and changes to the front skirt. The struts ride smoother but can be a pain to replace without proper gear. Unless you know what you're doing it is better left to a pro.
i paid about 280 dollars just for both sides of struts and shocks. struts alone were about 160.
If struts are included, I would guess $200-400.
I was just quoted $1,300 to replace front struts only (does not include rear struts.) Jetta GLI 2003 with 120,000+ miles.
how much is it going to cost me to replace the back struts on my Nissan maxima
Struts are much like what used to be shock absorbers except more expensive to replace. Bad/worn out struts will greatly reduce the handling and control of the vehicle. You can drive the car but it may put you in a dangerous situation. How much do you value your life?
The Accord uses struts, front and rear. There are no shocks. Roughly the struts will cost $300 for all four and whatever your shop charges for labor.
About $1000 for me.
If struts need to be replace on a car it's evident by how noisy and bumpy the ride is. The cost to replace struts on a Toyota RAV4 is approximately $600.
I was quoted $900+ on the front struts for my '99 pathfinder. On ebay they said they found some for $200 less, but that's still $700+ just for front struts.
Depends who does it. It could take upto 3 hours of labour and struts start around £65 for gas replacements. Oil filled struts are better but dearer.
600 or less
Probably around $300 installed
