No idea what the wishbones will cost, they can vary, from 50 to 100 each
Cv boot 10
Brake pipe 10
Wheel bearing 15. add their 10% mark up. for all the parts
The labour, maybe 5 hours, really closer to four, as most of the jobs are taking off, and putting back on
Get a few quotes, and explain as you walk in, you are after a quote. and also explain if the price is reasonable, you would like them to do the work.
But either way your parts, should you have main agents parts would at most be 300 , so its the labour, think most indies are around, 40 to 60 a hour
Hopefully they will just change the ball joints and not need to replace the wishbone :/
