Hi guys,

My Sylphy needs absorber replacement and engine mounting 4pcs replacement too.
2 places I check .. varies a lot in prices. Any idea why or they just hike up the price. They are not TCEAS.

Shop1
Front absorber 265x2 = 530 (kayaba recommended)
Front absorber mounting 265X2 = 530
Front absorber link rod 120x2 = 240
Total -> 530+530+240 = 1,300

Engine mounting 4pc = 1500 + GST + labour

Shop2
Front absorber 220x2 = 440 (nissan ori)
Front absorber mounting 100X2 = 200
Front absorber link rod 85x2 = 170
Total -> 440+200+170 = 810 + 120 (labour) + 56 (28*2 wheel alignment) = 986 + 120 = 1,106

Engine mounting 4pc = 1255 (no GST and labour yet)

Is this good pricing or hike up rdy :)

Heard from a friend who has one too, that the parts are really expensive.

Are the absorber mounting and link need replacing? For my other car make, I normally change if they are damaged only, if not use back first, same for engine mounting, usually 2 off them at bottom are more stressed and will break, the other top 2 can last longer.

Only a recommendation, but if you think changing everything at one go is your thing, then go ahead..... ;)
