Hello fellow Subaru owners.
I am looking for some advice. I have a 2011 3.6R Outback which I have just had serviced. I was told that my right rear shock absorber is leaking and was quoted $1100 per shock to replace with a genuine shock. To me this seems a little high. Just wondering if anyone can shed any light on this.
Thank you

Genuine will always be high in parts cost from a dealer. Does that quote include labour?

Aftermarket parts will be cheaper. KYB does a gas version as aftermarket to their oil filled OEM units supplied to Subaru.

Your car will either have self leveling or a pump up type rear shocker fitted to it from the factory, that's why the big $ to replace.

If you PM me your vin number I can check it out for you.
