sounds like a fair deal. new shocks will probably already costs $320 to $350, for 4 pcs. plus labour, will be around there $500. you may even get cheaper if u buy the shocks yourself from stockists


$840 is CHOP CARROT price, for stock normal shocks. you add a bit more, u can go for coilover liao.

labour $300 !?!? ohmy.gif

Is ok...most of us don't have the equipment - to buy all the tools necessary might cost about $100 or more?

I had a recent example, needed to change my toilet inlet valve - a $19 part from Homefix - cheaper elsewhere.

I called a plumber - he wanted to charge me $65 - I went to youtube and found some useful videos - seemed simple - and it actually was!

So I bought my own tools - needed a spanner, a special adjustable spanner thing for pipes, some plumber tape/sealant - cost me about $40 all up, plus the $19 for the replacement valve - I saved about $6!

Yeh, sure I can reuse the tools again - but maybe in 5 years!

So...unless you work on your car a lot and can justify the cost of purchasing the tools - sometimes the workshops are the only alternative!

Not Autobacs lah.

go to toyota stockists. i'm not sure who are the toyota stockists, but i'm sure some bros here will tell you later.

West side? most likely the stockist is at Alexandra Village.
