Customer Question
My mechanic says I...

My mechanic says I need new front struts....says its leaking. How much should the replacement (parts and labor) cost?

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to discuss this further with you. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

I actually got the front rotors + brake pads + rear brake pads replaced about 1.5 months ago. I then noticed after a week or two that there is a humming noise coming when the car is driving at a low speed or coming to a halt when braking. The humming noise comes even when making a slow left when parking for example.
