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.
i didnt even think u could
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.
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.
how much is it going to cost me to replace the back struts on my Nissan maxima
