I need struts in my 96 grand am gt 3.1. I was quoted $477 for Monroe Struts with installation and alignment. Is this reasonable or overpriced?

Its a bit high but about right. Do it your self.

I think that it is a pretty fair price. One thing to check though is if the quote includes new strut mounts. Personally, I would get new ones if you're going to spend the money on struts.

I know you'll spend less $ if you order the struts and mounts from rockauto.com and then have them installed, but it depends on how much time you have to get everything together. Remember, the shop is going to mark up the struts quite a bit!

The quote did not include the strut mounts. I called the shop and he said if they will decide if they need to go in at the time of install. They said they would only charge cost on the the strut mounts if needed.
