Was at ws yesterday...quoted rm120 labour for rear suspension only...reception saying no rm150 for rear/front, at least rm200+, price not standardised
Trick is dun ask receptionist. U ask directly to the mechanic (ah wah did for me). End of the day, the mechanic will tell the reception how much (as agreed with u).

At first the mechanic (dun know who) told me rm120...I quoted back the pricing & he insisted no such price & ask me to ask reception lady...
LOL...in the end reception also agreed after knowing the price from him..
To conclude , price is up to them to quote. Ask before doing , not satisfied jus move on

Don't mind me asking,your car rear suspension is using what setup? IMO, I believe labour charges might be due to the setup.

You brought everything and ask them to change? Or oil filter is from lch bros? Cos oil filter is around RM15-20

Just curious for what car?
How old is the car?
Do you know the history of the car?(eg; mods?)
Your route? mostly highways or city drive?

adding in:
You may look at the list done by HellHunter;
You may try TS Motor Workshop Services?

My personal alternate for LCH Bros is this shop called TS Motor Workshop Services
58, Jalan Setia Tropika 1/7, Taman Setia Tropika , 81200 Johor Bahru, Johor
+60 16-762 3240
+60 12 465 1618 (Xiao Ming, ex-BMS mechanic)

Very reasonable prices and they know their stuff. Trustworthy and honest shop. If you go, can tell them the Singapore black civic guy that used to go to them recommend you. My car scrap liao.

i'm sure you will be happy with TS motor.
Settled suspension issue at TS Motor. Xiao Ming is definitely much more approachable and friendly to talk to. Took Grab to Paradigm to shop while he settled my car. He sent photos of damaged parts to me while I was shopping so I can make a decision whether to replace some parts or not.

His workshop is small though, but luckily I was first to arrive. Canít tell about workmanship/skills yet as my problem was quite straightforward.

Overall good experience. Price on par with LCH. Have asked him to look out for several parts for my car, will go back again if quote is right.

just go to LCH bros.
change EO, clean TB, change spark plugs....

10km/L depends on what car you are driving. for me if I can achieve 9km/L i will be popping champagne
