No, this is a straight froward operation and it does not require any special tools.

My olsdmobile aroua needs shocks. about what is the cost on shocks installed? Jim Fields


Your car has struts. The strut cartridges are about $80.00/ea and require some special tools. You have to take the whole assembly out of the vehicle and then using a special set of tools, compress the spring that is attached to the strut. Once the front struts have been replaced an alignment is needed. depending on labor rates in your area, figure about 2 hrs. for the strut change and then what ever an alignment costs. I think about $400.00 is in the ballpark.
