Hello,

I was wondering if you could give me a ballpark figure of how many hours of labor it would take a normal, reputable garage to replace the following list of parts?

1. Front left & right upper strut mounts
2. Front left & right strut assemblies
3. Front left & right control arms & bushings
4. Front left & right sway bar links
5. Front left & right tie rod ends
6. Front left & right rotors
7. Front left brake caliper
8. Front left & right brake pads
9. Left parking brake cable
10. Right rear wheel hub assembly
11. Rear left & right brake shoes
12. Rear left & right wheel cylinders
13. Rear left & right brake drums
14. Oil pan
15. Oil pan gasket
16. Valve cover gasket
17. Rear oxygen sensor
18. Windshield wiper linkage (front wipers)

I was told I needed to replace those parts, and I was wondering roughly how long it should take to do a replacement job for those parts.

I want to make sure I have enough money saved up to pay for the labour and any environmental and shop supply fees that may arise.

Thank you
Gerald

No, it wasn't in an accident. They are parts I've let maintenance go. The dealership said those parts needed replacing. People have said not to listen to dealerships because their crooks, but I bought the parts anyway, just to be safe. To my untrained eye, some of the parts look perfectly fine, and I didn't need to purchase them, but I did, just to be on the side of safety.

I am donating more because I really would like to know if every single part I listed really is in need of replacement, approximately how many hours of labor would I be looking at?

I don't want to estimate myself because I have no clue. If I thought to myself "oh it will take 4 hours, so I will set aside enough money to cover 4 hours of labor" and then come to find out it would actually take 8, I would be out of luck.

I am on a tight budget and just want to know before I put it in anywheres.

Also, if you said 8 hours, and another garage here tells me it would take 15, then that would alert me that maybe that garage is not honest.

That's also why I wanted to know, too.

Thank you
Gerald
