What shocks? Each side takes about 10 minutes, they should have charged you for an hour in labor at the most. And I only say most because I know some shops charge a minimum of an hour.

I have about 250,000 I think on mine. I've changed a lot... engine feels strong, but I'm sure I need to swap out the gaskets. I doubt that's ever been done.

in 174,000 miles, mine never had the spark plugs, wires, cap, or rotor replaced. im amazed it wasnt missing like crazy. IIRC the gaps on the plugs were something like 70 thou

I KNEW that I forgot to call someone last night! My dad(Either mine or my wifes) to tell them of the Ocasional Dying while moving. After changing out everything above, it has still happened. Course, not near as often, but this morning was when it died with my wife in the car and we both in frustration took it to the shop. Another $225 down the drain for a $60 part. Someday I'm going to have enough smarts to just get on the forums and go from there. It was the Distributer. The shop said that it was Barely making contact with the gearing below. I COULD have fixed that myself. Ohh well.

yes... shocks. My toolbox went thru a partial theft years ago and have not until today gotten a new set of sockets and wrenches. I know they're cheep, but Sometimes its easier to have someone else do the work the first time with you taking notes as you watch. I WILL be doing alot more in the future. TIRED of paying parts AND labor(in a SMALL town where there are 3 shops and 4 tow trucks)

Tranny ordered and set for the install. Guess i pull out our XJ and drive it for a couple weeks so that the ZJ can make it to the shop(NO garage or paved flat ground around).
