My buddy has a 2000 Saab 9-5 2.3 Aero and needs shocks in a bad BAD way. He was quoted by his Saab tech that it would be about $1400 for a full set including labor. He was also quoted that amount by an independant shop that just worked on my CTS. Can't he simply 'BUY' performance shocks on his own? The price of the rear shocks were around 250 a piece. Can't he simply purchase the appropriate shocks and struts from a 'Napa' or other store? Sorry if I sound un-informed, but I don't know much about Saab!
