Yea, in my shops, we had wall mounted set up that was very safe, if you paid attention.

with that being said. Would you guys take a job if someone brought in their strut assembly with a new strut? Or was it only worth the work if you guys were doing the job on the vehicle start to finish.Yea, in my shops, we had wall mounted set up that was very safe, if you paid attention.
Makes sense. I’ve noticed that too. A lot of places won’t install customer supplied tires now. So that kinda brings tire rack and all them other tire websites to a lesser value for customers .We did take walk in jobs and depending on what was needed, we would do while customer waited or would call them when done. We looked at it like an opportunity to get our name out there with neighborhood shade tree mechanics. Sometimes, it brought bigger paying opportunities into the shop. We did not offer any warranty though for this work. The parts were not ours. Some shops, now days, are so busy that they don't do it.
If I had to do it again. I’d buy the shocks and see if I could find a mechanic that would compress the spring and rebuild the shock at a fair price. Then install myself. If it made sense cost wise.
