    Re: suspension

    sure ... can you PM (or email) me your VIN?

    you could post it here too, but some people don't like the idea of posting their VIN in public ...

    Re: suspension

    no worries on the delay ... it's your car and your repair

    so the good news is that I can save you money on these if you decide to stick with OEM parts

    the bad news is that it's still going to cost quite a bit

    and the even worse news is that the drivers front has been discontinued

    BUT all is not lost... there is still stock out there in the dealer network
    in order to get you one of these i'll have to buy it from another dealer who still has one left in stock
    and it will be non-returnable so you'll want to make sure you want them for sure before you decide to call in and pay
    (the other three will be returnable but with the standard 35% re-stocking fee that GM charges)

    LH FRT Strut
    #22064594
    $588.00 (price may vary a bit depending on the exact price that we get from the dealer that we get it from)

    RH FRT Strut
    #22064595
    $573.13

    Rear Shocks
    #22064596
    $573.13 (each)

    without the discount they would cost about $955 each

    Re: suspension

    i've heard that monroe or one of the other aftermarket brands has active shocks that you can usually find for a bit less than these prices

    used is a crapshoot ... not worth it unless you're getting them for dirt cheap since they might be worn out or wear out fully in the near future

    Yeah that might be right. 96 was a weird year so the aftermarket doesn't support it I guess.

    Re: suspension

    ive got one more question.

    if my car is taken to a dealer and tehy charge 125 for a diagnosis, then they repair the problem they found and charge me 600 dollars total....

    and after all that i pick my car up and the problem is still there...then what happens?

    the 125 i pay is supposed to b to find the exact problem right? if the problem still persists then they need to fix it right? this particular case isnt about the suspension btw. it was a chk engine light and a lean code. i told them to fix it they gave me a quote. now when i go pick it up, and check it with my scanner, and see that its still running lean in the same bank but doesnt show n e codes, can i tell them im not paying untill its not running lean n e more? so fix it?

    Re: suspension

    it's kind of a tough call in those situations ... the best thing to do is to talk with the service manager about your concerns

    they probably aren't going to do anything and say that the light is off so the sensor is operating correctly

    but having that conversation will at least get you down as not being "completely satisfied" with their work

    in fact that's a good way to start off that conversation ...

    "nice to meet you mr svc mgr, i just wanted to let you know that i was glad that you could get the check engine light to stay off but i'm not completely satisfied since it is still running lean... i'm afraid that in the near future i'll be back here with that light on again. i just wanted to talk to you to let you know that and see if there might be another way for you guys to make this right. I really want to be completely satisfied and you're so close but i just can't feel that way right now."
    or something like that

    Re: suspension

    i just got back from them. and yes....when i checked it it was still lean. and i told them that it was the reason i brought it in and its not fair that its not fixed yet. im not gonna pay this astronomical ammount. sadly that particular service manager wasnt tehre he just left. so i talked to another one. and that one said..."well they didnt fix it right, so go back and get that rental car again and "hugo" (srvs manager) will have to deduct it from ur bill again.
