So i brought my ‘10 3.8 in for an oil change, got a call from the service guy saying oil just gushed out of the right rear shock shortly after the car lifted off the ground. he suggested i get the rear shocks replaced for $700 labor included.

What do you guys think it is? I am not throwing down 7 benjamins unless i absolutely must.

TIA

I dont know how mechanically inclined you are, but rear shocks are real easy to do yourself. Id suggest you save your money, search here or YouTube on how to do them, and buy or borrow some basic tools to do them yourself.

IIRC, you don't even need to remove the spring to replace the strut.

If oil was "gushing" out of it, it means the strut basically fell apart...
I highly doubt it would do that, if they are OEM parts.

yeah when he told me that i was skeptical. but my car being at 100k miles id expect the shocks to be dying. Unless you fellas have heard or experienced the shocks living past 100k...
