If you have a Pull-A-Part or other pull it yourself junk yard in your area you can probably pick up a set of air bags for under $100. Yes you can change the air bags yourself, but be sure to disconnect the battery while working on the air bag system or they may deploy while working on the system.

Edit: I just check the cost of air bags at the Pull-A-Part located in Nashville, TN (closest one to me and the price was $36.60 each. If you want to see it there's one near you go to www.pullapart.com

Re: Rear End Collision Question

$39 at a self-service junkyard in my area that has online price lists...sounds like a common price.

car-part.com lists some as low as $20.

Re: Rear End Collision Question

it's uncertain whether or not i need the module and clockspring. if i do, the $155 price seems fair.

Re: Rear End Collision Question

When I had my big accident, the body shop wouldn't touch them and had an air bag specialist install and test them.
Sort of too important to mess with. Besides, the insurance won't cover your work I bet.

Re: Rear End Collision Question

I think they recommend replacing the module anytime the bags have been deployed.
