Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content

Need new shocks/struts on my wife’s 2009 RX350. Any one have experience with aftermarket (KYB, Bilstien) versus OEM? Lexus dealer wants $3.3k (all OEM parts), smaller shop wants $2.2 (KYB). Thoughts, experiences, suggestions?

According to, KYB struts offer "original ride quality". They cost $72 or $79 each, depending on whether you have 2WD or all wheel drive. I had KYB shocks in an older Mazda and the ride was very good. It's hard to believe that a small shop would charge $1900 for labor. You may want to inquire at a different shop.
