How much should a mechanic charge to replace both rear struts and strut mounts on a 2000 Lexus ES300? How much to replace the front motor mount and the upper motor mount?

since it is a lexus i would not advise going cheap. the struts will probably cost around $350. the motor mounts will probably run around a grand since so much work is involved.

When can you expect to have strut problems? Looking at a 1999 Lexus ES 300 (121,000 mi.) and am trying to determine if it has a strut problem. Also, what would be the cost for replacement?

Odds are, at 120000+ miles, it could well stand some new struts.

A Monroe "Quick Strut" will probably run in the neighborhood of 225.00 / each. Be sure to replace both....don't do just 1.

Labor to install probably around $300 and don't forget alignment @ around $80.

All together,(parts, labor, alignment, etc.) you could be looking at $830.

To save money, you could possibly get just a replacement cartridge, rather than a complete new strut (spring and all) for around $75 each, but may incur a elevated labor due to having to dis-assemble / re-assemble the strut assembly.

Causes for rear suspension noise? sounds like rubber bushing crunch when going through dips. What is the most common cause for this?

Rear struts,by the age of your car you will need them replace them Some times if your lucky you might be able to change just the top strut bearing or rubber mount,.but the strut will have to taken out of your car to do this.

My ES 300 Lexus has almost 80,000 miles

Price seems a bit high...just looked up struts at NAPA and found the most expensive were about $225 each. allowing for really high labor charges for all work, I came out with about 1250 complete. If the techs are very slow, or the labor charge very high, price still seems high. 80k is really pushing it on lifespan on struts...they are probably dead. Any competent shop can do this work...I'd shop around a bit. Usually chain store shops like peppyboys and others are not good places to bring a high-line vehicle. Check with friends to see who is most satisfied with the shop they use.
