I know there are struts on eBay but they're all shipped from USA and struts only.
Looks like an easy job and easier if preassembled
Just got back from our mechanic today, and he said NAPA quoted him $175 CDN per lower left and lower right control arm assembly which includes ball joints.
He couldn't find Strut mounts, however, so that's where we sit (can't find).
Sure, they're in the US, so then why not get them all there?
Because it will cost almost as much for shipping as for the parts!
1. KYB Front Strut Mounting Kit for $28.85 x 2 = $57.70 (+$54.40 Ship)
2. Front Driver Side Lower Control Arm $64.36 = $64.36 (+$30.86 Ship)
3. Front Pass Side Lower Control Arm $64.36 = $64.36 (+$30.86 Ship)
Total $302.54 USD x 1.35 Exchange Rate = $408.43 CAD :-(
Remove those 2 Strut Mount kits, then just $296.29 CAD :-)
