Check this evening after 8.00 pm. I should have got it by then, hopefully. My mechanic seems to be in no hurry to collect his payment. I have already reminded him a few times.

More often No than a Yes as it is dependent on the condition of the basic strut itself, shaft, seals, springs etc.

My car has done 77000 & this is the first suspension work done. So, i guess it should be around 60-70k kms.

Hey,
I think my Astra's suspension needs work but dont know how much it should cost so have been putting it off for quite a while now. It has clocked over a lakh kms & i dont know whether suspension has been changed or not. Will try and find out.

Anyway, what would be the approximate cost? My car is pretty old so if it is a little high then i might as well let it be as its not unbearable or such.

Go to any good workshop and ask them what would be the cost-range for a suspension re-do on an astra. Ask him to give a minimum and maximum figure .

esteem_lover,data you provided was really informative.

My esteem is moving a bit to the left when i brake hard, but my mechanic says everything is fine, shocks would hardly require a change & frequent greasing would help . I guess I got to follow psycho's words of changing the entire assembly.
