Hello. Welcome to FixYa.
Front struts: 1 hour per side times your areas labour rate
Rear struts: 1 1/2 hours per side times your areas labour rate.
Add a 4 wheel alignment price after the struts are changed
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
Hello wavehogflame: My name is Roger and I will help you. The answer to your question is yes. To change the struts you will need special equipment.Also will need front end alignment as well. The coil spring on the strut is compressed pressure from roughly 600 lbs.psi. to upward of 900lbs.psi. This will cause great bodily harm or death. Please take to some one who is qualified and has the proper tools for the job. Should you need further help please just ask. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
if the car is dipping in the front or on one side, they need replacing. bounce the car from one of the front sides. if it comes up and stays there, the struts are fine. if it continues to bounce a couple of times or more, replace the struts. also if they crackle when they bounce.
no you do not! this is a congame! unless your struts do not return to full ride height in one two two bounces when you push on the front of your hood you do not need to replace them. they wear out just like shocks
