    I got a quote for repairs to my car today...

    here's the list of what i need:

    1 Right Lower Control Arm
    1 Right axle
    2 tires 195.60.14

    so, the quote was 850$ for all of that. Does this seem like a fair price?

        seems alittle steep to me I think i had (4) 17" tires, a tie rod, control arm or something of that nature (cant remember exactly and do not have the reciept infront of me, but did not have 2 front end components replaced up front as you are looking at just one) and alinment, balance, blah blah blah, all for something like $600

          Axle: 180ish
          Control arm: 40ish
          Tires: 65ish each mounted/ballanced
          FEA: 45ish
          Labor: 2.5-3 hrs, @ shop rate (usually 65-75 per hour)
          Still seems about 225-250 too much
