Default 02 VUE shocks/struts

WHERE can I buy shocks/struts for 02 VUE? Dealer wants $175 each for structs, $100 each for shocks, price for PARTS only. Local auto parts stores say "cannot order"....??

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2003 VUE 3.0L
Default Re: 02 VUE shocks/struts

That's one of the bad things about the VUE - no tires, struts, shocks or most anything else available outside the dealer. Now they've added the Equinox that takes the same 235/65/16 tires, and they still aren't out there. Yeah, I know there are a few choices (more Duelers, Michelin LX4, a couple others) but that's not much. Most other tire sizes you can find plenty of competition for your business. My VUE could definitely use a set of Bilstein struts/shocks, but it ain't happening.

Monroe is listing part numbers on their website. I would think that means they can be ordered.

2003 VUE 2.2L
Default Re: 02 VUE shocks/struts

I have the same problem in NY obtaining Monroe Struts for my '02 FWD 5 Speed. White Plains wants a hair under 200 for each one not including mounts. I emailed Monroe since there are those two part numbers they list for the Vue but they have not shipped as of today. The excuse I got from Pep Boys was Saturn's decision or greed not to sell the rights to make the aftermarket parts. I recall by Law Saturn must make parts for their vehicles for somewhere between 7 to 10 years but I don't remember having this problem with other makes. I did find an ebay based Saturn dealer offering them with shipping for 315 with no mounts which is the best I could find over the last week. Would be nice to see KYB or Monroe selling them soon.

Saturn's decision to not sell the rights to make aftermarket parts?? What?

That makes no sense to me. Anyone can make parts for a given car. You don't need the manufacturer's blessing. I doubt that spring and Eibach went to Saturn and asked for their permission to make lowering springs. The entire aftermarket industry would collapse if they had to get permission from the OEMs to make stuff for their cars.
