I loooked into this last week and they were going to charge $1100 just for the shocks and spring set, plus we have a 14% tax to add on, plus it was $392 plus the good old 14% tax on that for the labour and then like $19 for an alignment (which is cheap) and it came to a total of $1834.20 just to have the car lowered by 1.3" and be able to say "I have TRD
shocks/struts and lowering springs."
I said fuck that and am now going with Tokico HPK, and it will give me the same look and no doubt the same quality in terms of parts and ride and the part alone is so much cheaper and I talked to our family mechanic last night and he is going to talk to his buddy who just opened up a new shop and I may be able to get the parts for a bit cheaper too and hopefully the labour won't be too much.
BTW these are Canadian prices and taxing system and I was told it's a six hour job.. either way, TRD
is overpriced unless it's the TRD
