Hi all, took the R in for an oil change yesterday, and of course they "discovered" all kinds of things I need to spend money on to fix the car.
1 in particular, and most expensive item are the front control arm bushings. He told me they are "torn/loose" (thats what he wrote down). And said they would be $195 for parts, and 4 hours labor. So $595 total
I already did some searching and saw that $195 for the bushings is way high, seems like even for a dealership. Are there 2 on each side? How many are there on the front control arm? I saw <$40/pair for front control arm bushings.
Is 4 hours reasonable to replace these? And should "loose" bushings be replaced? Also is this a safety issue in the short term?
Thanks a lot everyone.
