Help with struts and shock absorbers....
Posted 05 November 2009 - 08:50 PM
I recently brought my 96 Legacy Wagon into a GMC shop to have snow tires put on. The tech there told me that the rear struts were 'leaking fluid' and that I would need to have them replaced.
Does he mean I would need a strut or a shock absorber or what? He showed me the torn boots but I'm a little confused. They would not do a wheel alignment citing the 'weak struts'. They estimated $670.29 for two rear struts replaced.
Thanks for help/info,

buy a set of used strut assemblies (complete strut, coils, the entire assembly) for about $35 a piece and install those. you might even be able to post in the parts wanted forum here and have someone with a parts car send you a set. i have one rear, but not two.
they're super easy to replace too, hardly anything to it. once the wheel is off it's all of 5 nuts and it all comes out as one assembly. can probably bue both sides in an hour.
