hey summers69, how much did that set you back in parts? (or labor if you took it to the dealer)?

I'd take it to another shop and get a second quote.

You can do it yourself with parts from Autozone.

Inner Tie Rod: $30.99 x 2 = $61.98
Outer Tie Rod: $14.99 x 2 = $29.98
Control Arm L: $61.99
Control Arm R: $66.99
Sway Bar Link: $29.99 x 2 = $59.98

Might as well replace the control arm bushings for another $5.99 each. $5.99 x 4 = $23.96

Oh, then you'll need an alignment. $50.00

With all that apart, go ahead and replace your struts ($80 ea) and do a brake job too ($60). Heck for a couple hundred ($95x2) more you can replace your wheel bearing/hub assembly and depending on the milage of your car, why not replace the CV half shaft $110 each.

Ah, screw it... Drive it till it dies.
