    Auto repairs

    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?

    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
