Lower Hudson Valley indie shops ?

Post by GlennG2759 » Wed Jan 09, 2019 8:06 pm

Anybody know of any reputable indie shops in lower Hudson Valley N.Y. I need trailing arm mounts done before I turn my '94 850 into my daily to Jersey commuter car. I've done all my own work so far, but this won't be easy in an unheated gravel floor barn, and don't want to wait until spring. What should a job like this cost, I've done the the delta links, Thanks in advance

About $300 in parts and 10 hours of labor. $1500 all in.

Most shops will drop the entire rear axle to get this nasty job done and burn the old ones out.

Yikes. I had no idea. I think I wait until spring and do it myself, just put 4 tires on it and local tire shop was afraid to attempt rear alignment, aligned front for free (gee thanks). It does drive straight as an arrow on NYS thruway though. Thanks for your input.

It could be as little as 4 hours but that job can be all over this place. Call me for moral support if you want help!

Up the mighty Hudson near Albany.
