1ALSP00017-Hood Lift Support Pair
I received the replacement hood supports in just a few days. I installed them in less than 10 minutes. I have no idea how much this repair would cost at the dealer. But I would assume they would charge at least twice as much for the parts & then add a minimum of one hour service time. So I'm assuming that it would cost at least $200 at the dealer, for what I accomplished for approximately $50. Plus it was far more convenient for me to order online and perform the work in my driveway. So I got the repair accomplished and never had to leave home. That saved me time and frustration, (I did not have to wait at dealership or drive there to get the work done. LIFE IS GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!
