I take my car in for service on a regular basis and knew that I would soon need rear brake pads. Then I suddenly lost all braking ability and was told I needed remanufactured brake vacuum booster & a new brake master cylinder assy combo at a cost of $515. and labor at $318. along with new rear drum brake shoes $50., rear drum brake hardware fit, $23.; new rear brake wheel cylinders $24 with labor cost of $159; plus stallation/resurface drums/lube all rear drum brake hardware/adjust parking brake (1.5 hrs) complete brake fluid flush & fill @ $130.
Question Asked: Replacement of both rear gas strut assemblies
May 30, 2010, 04:10 PM
I was told that my rear gas strut is leaking fluid and recommends to replace pair of rear gas strut assemblies (1.2 hrs labor per side) and a 4 wheel alignment for $668 plus tax on parts only. My vehicle has only 78,000 miles of only city and freeway driving. Would this be an average repair needed for this type of driving and is this price in the right area? Also what parts are included in a strut assembly?
