Hi guys, I just wanted to get an input from you experienced people. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> I found an ad in Sears offering a discounted price in labor to replace struts/shocks. My ride is really stiff, so I really want to get them replaced. Though I have called around getting quotes I want to hear from you guys. To get just the struts replaced, it is $357.30. Each strut is $89.99 (i think they are sensa-shock) and the labor to replace each one is $50. So $89.99 x 2 + $100 labor = $357ish. Is this a good deal? Thanks for your input guys.

If that includes alignment, which you MUST have, the labor is pretty good. <br>You can check the part prices on the Internet.<p>The T5 should be stiff, although it's not in stock configuration.

Brian,<p>It's my understanding that stiff isn't usually a symptom of bad struts so you may find the replacements to be no different than what you have. Sure, they may last longer, but it may not be money well spent.<p>Do you have low profile tires? Perhaps you could start there.<p>Just a thought!<p>Jack
