Hi all

2010 2.5 premium Outback

Rear shocks have started leaking and I want to replace them.

My research so far tells me the oem parts are 842$ each ouch!

My research also tells me that you can do aftermarket coilovers conversion with a 1" lift which I really don't need any lift.
I need towing capacity really so std height heavy duty springs and maybe aftermarket struts. I can't seem to find any Australian supplies for the rear suspension and so it leads me to the
Oem units which is bloody ridiculous price wise for a pair of shocks.

Anyone else done something in melbourne that I might be able to save some cash or just a little less for a bill.

Seems my generation ob is the
Poor cousin mod wise

Have you tried running your VIN through partsouq.com? From there you'll be able to find just about every genuine part for your vehicle. Hopefully they'll be selling struts ;)

Ok - so pedders aren't necessarily the best, but they list a rear shock for BR outback.

$150
