hi just got my vy back from a service and this is what they said needs done - rocker cover gasket $180 rear ext housing seal $160 power steering leak from rack and pump $780 z bar bushes $380
link pin bushes $140. just wondering if there trying to rip me off he said the leaks arent bad

Who says ned kelly is dead , back from the grave armed with a spanner .
Rocker gaskets are about $25 each side, and its about halfer to 45 mins to do. 1 hr of labour absolute max.

I had to ring Holden for another issue the other day, and they factor in $130 an hour labour. So sounds like the prices they qouted were more labour than anything, and some of the things you said that need doing arnt overly difficult
$780 to fix a pump and rack leak, what did they do? If they put a reconditioned rack and pump in than that price maybe be right. I got quoted $500 for a reco rack with 12 months warranty and a wheel alignment. Pump, not expensive or overly hard to fit.
Z bar bushes, a bit hard to get out, but should be easy with the proper tools that the dealership should have.
$140 for link pin bushes? Are they made of some rare minerals? Crikey, $50 for pins and bushes, and maybe 20 minutes to change if car is on a hoist.
Never done a rear extension housing seal so I can't comment on that.
