I was under the impression from the thread that it was a recall. I could be wrong though...will double check....
Whats a TSB? Technical Service Bulletin? Will they still fix it for free? I don't care what they want to call it, but i'm not paying $1200 for it. Worst case scenario, will do it myself. I've done the struts on the 89 (though i would imagine these are probably a little more complicated) and I have done the wheel bearing on the 95 and murdock has done it on his 97 too...I tell you, my retro pay couldn't have come at a better time..becasue it'* all going now!
Looks like my luck just ran out

Edited because i've got retro pay, not severence

No, a technical service bulletin is just a known problem and resolution. Its not covered as a recall. If you have warranty it will be covered but in your case I think your going to have to pay.

Have the same problems with my struts on my car wtih the cracking noise. Upper bearings are shot. Have no idea what the price is as i haven't taken it in. Let me know when you find out what is to do the struts.

To clarify, TSB ( Technical service bulletins) are not Recalls.
To date there has only been 1 recall for the 2000 year and 188 TSB'*.
Have a look here at alldata for a list of tsb'* and recalls.

Well i was quoted $1200 for the whole shibang and $450 was the bearing...so about $750 for strut mounts and bearings. It'* even WORSE tonight...sounds like it'* going to give out on me at any time lol...guess I will be pulling the good old 95 out...whatever happened to 2 years of driving with nothing going wrong?
There'* no way $450 is the cheapest (for quality) bearing I can get. Is the 2000 bearing the same as the 97? This same place quoted me $300 (cheapest) something for the bearings for the 95 and I ended up buying them for $150 someplace else.
