Does that sound right?

Hi all,

I have an estimate to replace both upper control arms, all four rotors and all pads, front end alignment and replace a license plate bulb for $1,756.80. Does that sound right? I think it's a little high myself comments are always welcome.

$300 max per axle for brakes I would say labor included
$400 in arms max
$80 alignment

So yeah I would say stupid high!

This is all easy stuff you can do yourself and then bring it to be aligned.

Does that price include His October Car payment?

At worst it's $450 too much.

Do it yourself for 1/2 that plus alignment depends on your parts you get also. I would only get moog ball joints.
Why do you need rotors are they warped? Just slap on some pads unless it shakes breaking.
