Unhappy Control Arm Bushings Are Shot!!!

My control arm bushing are so bad my 87 300E goes "clunk" whenever i turn the wheel. My tech said he will replace them and my tie rods because they are going bad as well. How many hours(without alignment) does this intial? What is the usual labor cost of this job? Is there anything else i should have him look at or replace while he's in there? Your comments will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!
Adam

We usually get 2.4 hrs per side and .5 per tie rod. So about 5.8 for the full job minus alignment. Make sure you get a four wheel alignment.
