Hi Guys, does anyone have an idea as to what replacement struts should cost for a 2011 Range Rover sport? OEM Parts & labor? I need 1 front and 1 rear.
Thanks in advance.

With or without roll stability? Have you checked parts pricing at any of the usual sources? Rear without will be about $360, rear with will be about $900. Left and Right have different part number so be careful when looking parts up. Front without Stability are about $500, with are about $800.

Labour varies depending on where you take it. Call your local shops and ask for their labour rates.

Thanks guys. I ended up taking it to my independent LR shop today. They want roughly $900 for the struts and 3 hours labor to install each strut. So the labor is right in line with your assessments but the parts are a little more than anticipated. The dealer quoted way more! Roverlandparts.com seems like a good resource. I will keep that in mind for the future.

Thanks again

My local indie wants $1300 (ish -- it was a rough estimate) for front left strut with labor (VDS) for my '11 RRS supercharged -- says Arnott are junk and to go only OEM. Appointment on Monday but have not gotten full breakdown yet. Granted, they stock the OEM ones so there is a motivation there to sell. Company has many great reviews though on Yelp. Roverland parts seems to be about $950 to my door. Not sure on their labor rate, but after looking at a video I'm surprised to see it's 3 hours of labor. If that's true -- $1300 ish seems pretty decent.

Arnott struts are great. In over 10 years of using them i have only had to warranty 1 and it was many years ago. Arnott uses a much better quality air bag than the factory.

Guy seemed to think they were just reman'd. Looks like they used to be, but at some point Arnott introduced completely new NON-reman ones. For $4XX, that seems a lot better than $1300... I watched a couple youtube videos on replacing them, and it really doesn't seem like 3 hours... hour at most with proper tools and a lift. This shop has great reviews (insanely great, actually) and comes highly recommended... but maybe they're just not aware of Arnott's non-reman option. Example thread: http://www.rangerovers.net/forum/6-range-rover-mark-iii-l322/253041-best-pricing-arnott-expedited-parts-brand-struts-2.html. Doesn't seem like they had the best rep as of two years ago. From best I can tell, these 'new' options have only been on market for a year or less.

When they first started out, they were reman units using a used strut replacing the air bag and that is when i got a bad one. It was many years ago probably around 2005 or 06. It was clunking. Now they seem to be good quality new assemblies and customer service is good too. The rubber the factory was using was hard and thin while the Arnott bag was thick and soft rubber. Definitely seemed to be better. Also that said I have not ever had to replace an Arnott strut for a leak where as the OEM range rover springs seem to only last between 4 to 6 years.

Just my own experience with them.

Folks, this not an Arnott debate. The Arnott fiasco has been beat to death already. That is not the point here.

DO NOT use Arnott products for one side change. Stick to genuine parts to maintain proper ride comfort and handling. The originals have lasted 7 years. There is no reason to compromise your Rover and not trust that genuine parts will easily last another 7 years.
