$$ front end repair


#1

IS $900 TO A $1000. FOR 2 TIERODS AND 2 LOWER BALL JOINTS REASONABLE ON A 1992 NISSAN PATHFINDER 4WHEEL DRIVE, THANKS FOR YOUR TIME


#2

Is it the inner or outer tie rods, or both? Upper or lower ball joints, or both? Is an alignment included?

Edit: Sorry, just noticed it is lower ball joints. Both sides I assume Ok, guessing, but I’d say 3 hours for those. Add another hour for the tie rod (assuming both sides, only outer, not inner). So you got 4 hours labor, that’s around $400. Parts? Say $350 maybe. So that’s $750. Alignment, another $100, comes to a total of $850. So it is in the ballpark anyway. Of course the best way is to seek out some more quotes from one or two other well-recommended inde shops.

YES. BUT FOLLOW GEORGE’S ADVICE AND GET A SECOND OPINION.

A second opinion is always the best plan of action when you are unsure.
