Default Peugeot 3008 expensive shock absorbers ?

Hi everyone. I own a 2010 Peugeot 3008 2.0L Diesel Exclusive.

I took my car to the main dealer to get the cars shock absorbers checked over. I told the dealer about the soft/bouncy ride and they said they could test the effectiveness of the shocks on some machine they have.

One of the rear ones was leaking (pointed out on the MOT) and the whole car has been feeling really soft and bouncy going into corners and around roundabouts. Given that everyone seems to recommend replacing both shocks at the same time to avoid any imbalance I was prepared for having to replace both rear ones.

The dealer said the Front Driver shock was at about 50% effectiveness and the Front Passenger one was at about 30%. The quote to replace those was 660

The rear shocks seem to be some kind of smart-arsed linked system with other pipes and bits that look like they are directly connected to the shocks.

The dealer has quoted 1400 to replace the rear shocks.

So to replace all the shocks I'm looking at 2100

Please can someone explain to me why it is so expensive? I don't get it?

The last 8 digits of my VIN: AS004849

Many thanks.

This should go some way to explaining the rear. Complete assembly only - no individual components available.

Shades of the Citroen DS19!

If you're in reach of Telford, you could try Contact us - French Diagnostic Services Telford (FDS).. They repair things, rather than just fit parts.

The front shocks, 5208 E6 and E7 are about 50 each on eBay.

Let us know how you get on.
