<b>RE: new struts? shocks? for a 82 280zx how much
Shocks run from about 29.95 apiece at Sears to 125 each or so for Tokico Illumina adjustables. I have KYBs on my '82, which I think were about $50 each when new. The warning I've read many times on this forum is to not get struts that are too stiff.
And my advice is to not get struts from Sears. My rear ones wore out after less than a year. They have a lifetime warrenty, but it's not worth the hassle. And when replacing them, the mechanic told me that those shocks they sell (Gabriel) suck and are just not meant for performance cars. Same with Monroe.
If I were to do it again, I'd definately get at least KYB's.
