I was just quoted $80 to install OEM rubber bushings! Is that rape or does it sound right?
Go with some greasable poly ones. They are a lil more for front and rear, but well worth it...
Edit: OOO u meant install... 80 bucks is cheap for all of em... How many were you quoted to get done for that price? Its not easy to get the old ones out....
You can get non-greasables from Energy Suspension for about $45 for either front or rear springs.
Like remove the springs and install bushings or you bring the springs and they install them?
Sounds cheap IMO. Figure average shop rate around my area is about $60-80 an hour. For just one spring I've had it take me all of 2 hours(granted I've done it a few times since then, but thats not how a flat rate system works), so yea in my mind, thats not bad.
All the work is done for them.I already removed the old bushings.All they need to do is press the new ones in.and that $80 is for the rear leafs only.
Buy some polyurethane bushings ,you can push them in by hand ,no need for a press ,they don't have the outer metal sleeve like the OEM ones .
And they will out last the rubber ones .
Yea what he said. ^ Put that $80 toward a better quality bushing you can install yourself. Rubber is the old technology, bring your bushings upto date. Grease the snot outta them with some white lithium so they don't squeak.
THATS AN AWSOME PRICE. But have them upgrade you to poly bushings. It is a B*tch to get the old ones out and well worth $80 IMO.
he said he already had the old bushings removed
Give me the 80 bucks and I'll send you some grease and a hammer to put them in with.
I'll do it for $70.
