Truck needs front passenger side springs and shock...any idea the cost? work truck in rough shape

My car has 250000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. If the truck is in rough shape, you might want to have a local shock install shop swap them out, as it’s probably more affordable than having a professional mobile mechanic come to your location. If you have a Midas, Pep Boys or similar shop in your city, I would consult with them on this. In general, the pricing would be anywhere from $150 to $400.

Q: Hi Eric. My 1996 Ford E150 Conversion passenger van leaks gas when ever I put it in. I can only put $8-10 in at a time. Help?!?
