    1998 SLS Front Strut and RKE Prices

    I pretty sure I need new strut front Struts, I have the Service suspension message and the obvious ride quality issues that goes along with it. Front Right Strut clunks and squeaks when turning. I still need to do the tests to confirm.

    What is your price for an "active" strut replacement. Not to sure I want to go passive at this point.

    Additionally I need a Driver 2 key and both RKE Key Fob's. (I'm assuming I'll have to have programmed at a dealer.)

    Number on Key Fob is: 25656444

    Shipping to 48316

    Thanks,
    Rob

    Rob,

    I'll need your VIN to make sure I get the right parts looked up. That remote part number looks good to me but I want to be 100% sure. I do think you might be able to program it yourself, but I'm not sure - maybe other forum members can help you with that. Another possible part to check on is the upper strut mount/bearing. Sometimes that will cause those types of noises.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    I can't for the life of me figure out how to send you a PM.

    I think you are right about the strut bearing though, it it does make a sound when turning which sounds like it is coming from the top of the right front strut.

    It rides pretty bouncy, I really need to do those tests to rule out a controller or other electrical problem but it seems as though the strut is bad.

    you won't be able to send PMs until you have passed the 'crucible' ... well there's some sort of threshold of participation ... threads commented in, total comments, threads started .. etc

    management likes to keep the exact requirements under top secret classification so the spammers don't know what it would take to get an account with PM access ...

    do you see my email in my sig?

    I don't even see you sig, that might be blocked for newbies too! I did find it in your profile but it is same color as background so I almost missed it there.

    Email sent, thanks for your help so far!
