Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
hello, shocks- struts-- tomato -tomoto--- the truck does have front struts -- not shocks -- some people will say strut some say shock-- either way they are very expensive,tim
Do you have any suggestions for good off road struts for a Dodge 1/2 ton 4x4? What kind of cost should I be looking at for replacement and labor?
That answer was not worth $29.00
I was hoping for something more comprehensive with suggestions on type of strut and how to best attack the situation.
I would replace the strut with MOPAR parts OEM-- if you are looking for an aftermarket part I would sugges a RANCHERO part-- they have a good name and good quality
the stuts take about an hour a side to replace -- would you like me to post procedure
procedure meaning what?
Is Ranchero a name brand for off road?
the procedure to remove and install
and yes-- Rancheros is the name brand
this is a good website for this
found it, and they are calling them shocks right?
thus my confusion...
that is correct-- sometimes referred to as coil overs
I was told about an hour per strut/shock to replace and total cost by the dealer and a tire store about $500 or a little more.
labor is correct and price is in the ball park--
if you wanted to upgrade you can purchase a more expensive shock-- labor will not change
I am keeping this truck for at least 5 more years so I want something dependable
I would purchase the dodgeMOPAR parts-- they are pretty reliable and have a lifetime part warranty-- this would be the last set you would buy for this truck-- I am not a big fan of aftermarket parts -- that is just my opinion
