Is it necessary to replace both the tie rod and lower table when replacing the shock and spring?

Asked by May 23, 2014 at 09:37 AM about the 2002 Jaguar X-TYPE 3.0

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I had my 2002 x-type in the garage for a broken front shock, they changed both the
tie and lower table(?) without asking saying that it had to be done. Is this really the case
or was the garage just boosting the bill?

When the shock broke, it might have compromised the tie rod end and control arm. Tierods usually last around 100K. When they replaced the shock, the might have replaced the parts to get the alignment to work. I suggest you talk to the mechanics to get a better answer, as I can only guess.

Tom is right but- the mechanics should have discussed the work that was needed before they replaced expensive parts- now, we will never know if that work was needed or not- before spending money, people have a right to be ASKED if they want the work done- and the right to LOOK at the damaged parts and have an explanation- I would look for a better garage- these guys sound suspicious-
