Replacing Struts and Rear Shocks

Hey everyone, I am looking to replace my front struts and rear shocks on my '11 WK2 Laredo with the standard suspension (rear shocks are not load levelilng).

I've looked around online and can not find any aftermarket replacements. I gave my local dealership a call and they quoted me $440.28 after tax for struts and rear shocks, no labor... I feel as though this is just too much money.

Does anyone know where I can find part numbers to look up prices online? Has anyone on here replaced their shocks on their WK2?

If you want to save some money on installation the Rear shocks are very easy to replace.

16mm bolts for the shock mount bolts.

I can't rememver exactly but the shock bolt is like a 24mm

The most trouble is gonna be the nut that attaches the shaft to the shock mount.

Re: Replacing Struts and Rear Shocks

Did you find any good replacement struts/shocks? My wife's 2012 GC needs new shocks and it's hard to find the front ones.
