Alfa GT rear suspension replacement Sydney
« on: June 11, 2021, 04:14:55 PM »
Hey all,

2006 GT rear struts starting to fail and need a replacement. What are we looking at roughly?

So far i've been quoted by Peddlers for $1500 for the two rears.

Thanks guys :)

I'm in Sydney and looking for recommendations

Well Arese Spares in Sydney sell the shocks themselves for $170 ea. (And are usually genuine parts)
Add to that the upper mounts are $87 ea so your looking at a parts total of around $515, add to that a set of Dust boots/Bump stops & Freight and you're looking at around $600 in total.

So I am going to assume that Pedders are quoting prices on shocks that are a little more exotic than original, otherwise $900 for fitment seems a little steep. (But is no doubt the going rate)

Shop around and see what other prices are available, you'd be surprised.
