Toyota Vigo Shock Absorber, how much do you pay, what do you install ?

Recommended Posts

hi,

 

Wondering for someone who never changed its Toyota Vigo Shock Absorbers.

 

Do you know if prices and products at Bquik are acceptable ?

https://www.b-quik.com/en/product/shock-absorber/search?b=47&m=1281&y=1349&pp=5&sort=price

Front Shock Absorber - TOYOTA INNOVA, VIGO 2WD

Price 1,250.00 Baht

 

Anything better / cheaper ? Do you change them at Toyota or any service center like Bquik ?

 

Thank you.

I changed front & back on mine when I had a Vigo at " Cockpit " they had a range and choice of shocks.

It was years ago so best go see them for quotes.

I had my Mazda BT50 serviced at BQuik, there were slight seepage on both back shocks, they quoted me about 3500baht for the pair, told them not to bother. I will closely monitor and let it develop and also instructed my wife to drive slower over the speed bumps.

My Vigo rears cost 800bht each at B-Quik for stock replacement.....They do a heavy duty version which they took off as they overode the springs...Stock are perfect..

So do you think they charge 1000baht per shock for fitting?

B QUICK seem to be a very good outfit, and reliable in my opinion..

Have you checked with Toyota sales/servicing departments.??

If thats the fitted cost then thats reasonable IMHO.

Yes 2000 baht sounds reasonable, but when you think that 2000 baht is £50, it sounds a bit pricey, especially as it only involves 4 nuts and bolts.

Ask Toyota their supply and fit cost....😋

 

B-Quik will cost you 1780 bht with a one year written guaranty....44 quid..

It's a Mazda BT50 Trans, but I suspect they'll be very similar if not the same?

So basically they are charging about 800 baht a pair for fitting, which is reasonable and not worth getting my hands dirty. Thanks😉

You think they drive the vehicle into the bay, lift it on the hoist and remove the wheels for free ?

 

Edit:..... ahh yeah my post in reply to your question about price I read it as 1000b for the shock fitted............... not 1000 just for fitting.
