Hi, I am wanting to purchase KYB GR-2 struts from tirerack.com for my girlfriends car. The back is making a squeaking/swooshing sound when going over bumps and the front it creaking/cracking. The car has onl 82k on it and is not driven hard. I was wondering what is the usual replacement cost for both the dealer doing it or a place like TireAmerica or some place like that performing the work if I supply the struts. What I need to know is just the install fees. Thanks in advance

Sounds like the situation I was just in. I had mine fixed last Tuesday and even the mechanic thought it was the struts.. Mine is a '98 Altima with 62K miles and actually the swaybar just needed to be greased.. so maybe you should go bring it to a shop first.. otherwise I had called a number of shops and the struts and labor ranged from $340-$700 for the replacement of the rear pair of struts.

My wifes 99 Altima GXE is making that squeeking noise in the rear, especially when you go over a speed bump. Its like rubber squeeking .

Then the front started making a noise when you turn the wheel sharp, not really a grinding noise, but ...kinda hard to explain.

I thought about putting on new struts,it has about 80k miles. Dealer wants over $1000 for all new struts :bs:

Did you ever fix your problem? How do you grease the swaybar? is that in the front or rear?
