Rear shocks replacement

Recommended Posts

My inter-provincial safety inspection identified my  14 year-old rear shock bodies were leaking ( I confirmed that ) ... 1200 CAD, about 1000 USD, per shock, for the replacements ... yikes! Apparently this is a weak spot on the GT3-1? Any other experiences?

I think your pricing is way out of line, 2005 GT3 struts retail for $436 each (USD).  Without knowing the mileage and history of the car, it would be hard to describe leaking struts as a "weak spot".

Who might be selling Porsche part 996.333.051.95 that price? Pelican charges $838 US per damper for that part.

 

Car has 35,000 miles on it ... quite a bit of track time in the first 12,000 miles.

Board sponsors Sunset Porsche, you can look them up on their parts website.  Interestingly, that is not the part number they listed for the GT3, your part number is $660.

Thanks all ..... will use this info next time!! ..... Good thing I did not know the GT3 RS dampers were cheaper.... I'd have been tempted to go that way, likely throwing off Porsche's careful suspension balance! 

 

Awaiting spring in the Canadian Okanagan..
