OK, I guess the title of the question shows that I know nothing about my baby’s suspension system, but otherwise I’ve taken very good care of her. About 165,000 miles and strong in body and spirit, but her ride seems kind of rough. I’ve asked about shocks at three shops and received different opinions.
Two shops (one independent and one Toyota dealer) quoted me something like $1,000+ to replace whatever. The other, a Toyota dealer, said that the struts had no “maintenance interval”, and asked if I’d noticed any difference in the ride since she was new. Well, that was almost 15 years ago, so who knows?
Anyway, I asked them to check the suspension while I had her in for an oil change, and they said everything was fine. So, what to do? I do think the ride is pretty rough, but don’t want to spend that kind of money unless I’ll see real benefit. Ideas?
