Hello there...newbie here. I've searched this forum and googled the heck out of replacing my cartridges for front shocks on 2011 Wk2 (without fancy air suspension). I have the 2WD 2011 Grand Cherokee Laredo 70th Anniversary Edition and need to change the front struts. I've called all local repair shops and no one can seem to get their hand on replacement struts/shocks....it's been very frustrating. A couple of the local shops said that I would have to contact dealer. I did that, and they want an outrageous amount of money just to replace front struts.
I've done strut type changes before and am familiar with strut compressors, etc...and am not afraid to change them myself and then go get an alignment, but can't spend the amount of $$ the dealer wants.
Any info, advice, or those who have changed theirs out with any tips would be much appreciated!
ColdCase...thanks! Mopar online is showing 3 different products that show w/o leveling, and w/o air suspension, which is what my WK2 is, and the prices range from around $65 - $105 each...which is waaayyyy better than the dealer. Since the 3 products do not list/state any differences, or even part numbers, even when added to cart, I will have to call Mopar Online and see what the differences are.
ColdCase..thanks soooo much again for the tips. I called MoparPartsOnline, and was unable to reach a representative and didn't want to email questions back and forth. However, I was able to get in touch a seller from Alabama, RoundTree Mopar Parts and spoke to very helpful sales person. He guided me through ordering the correct parts, matched with my VIN. I ordered the new front and rear cartridges, shock mounts, and insulators, for a very reasonable price. The fun part will begin in a couple days when I wrestle with strut compressors! whoohoo.
