I know the overheads running a workshop, and a dealer is a different league but 1.4k to fit two track rods and boots is taking the p***

Sorry if this is rubbing salt in but I have just done a back of a fag packet recon up. Now this is using non genuine parts but they are quality components. Two (TRW) track rods, two new rack boots fitting and full four wheel alignment on a Hunter wheel aligner and including vat it’s less than £350. No I am awear that a Porsche specialist is going to cost a bit more and likely to fit genuine parts OPC is going to be a bit more again but for the life of me can’t see how the hell they came to that figure.

Well I picked the car up this afternoon, price for
2 x track rods,
2 x track rod arms,
2 x gaiters and clips, &
four wheel tracking = £1532.46

But on a positive note on my 50min drive home the airbag light remained off Very Happy

I'm going to put this one down to experience Grin

I would just like to say a big 'THANK YOU' to deMort for all the input & advice regarding this worship worship worship

Why did you need the track rod arms, surely the play is in the joints only?

That is what I was told initially, so I agreed to have both track rod ends replaced.
But it appears that the joint on the track rod arm (inside the gaiter) also had some play, so they replaced the lot... Surprised
