You have mcphereson struts not shocks, you will need new struts, labor plus alignment, Struts will run about $130 each, labor about $100 per side, alignment about $65.00 - about $ 500 .00 bill for total job...

It is a strut and it is really safer to have someone in a shop do because of alignment issues. estimate 150 maybe a lil less.

It does not have shocks on the front. It has struts. They normally cost around $85 plus labor for installation. They must be replaced in pairs. So you are looking at around $400 give or take $75.

Shock absorber for nissan presage2003


As far as I can tell, you cannot.
Nissan and the other auto makers stopped using front shock absorbers on their cars about 30 years ago.
Now they use a combination shock and spring holder, etc. called a "strut".
Into your computer type "Presage" and do some serious looking,
You might be able to order parts for them from somewhere like Japan, China, or some such country in the far east.
Honestly, the cars imported by Nissan into this country almost never need front struts, even as old as yours.
However, repair garages still tell people they need them, because the repair garages need to make money to stay in business.

I would suggest replacing the lower control arm bushings along with the sway bar bushings (4 pcs) in the then have a mechanic jack up the back and ascertain if any looseness is detected in the rear control arm assembly
