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

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.
