I.ve been quoted $500 to replace front struts on 190D, 1985 (labor only). Took me 3 hours in my garage. Today (with the experience) it would take maybe 1.5 hours. Would not agree on anything longer (in 190 springs DID NOT come out)
1985 190D 2.2l Sold-to Brother-in-law
1996 Mustang 3.8l -"thinks it's a sports car"
1988 Grand Wagoneer - Sold (good home)
1995 Grand Cherokee Ltd -"What was I thinking??!!"
