New control arm bushings

I need to do this and lower ball joints and i want to know how hard it is and what special tools. I got a quote from my mechanic and he told me around $300-$400 and i think that is quite rediculous. Tell me what you guys think. Can the guy from MB Autowerks give me a quote. I would be willing to drag myself out there if i can get a good price. I also want to put the sportline control arm bushings in. Tell me how hard this is to do.

Consider replacing the whole lower control arm

You can by the complete lower control arm with bushungs and ball joint already attached. For the total cost and all the headaches ,its an easier way to go.

if you've never done this and don't have all the special tools and rack you won't think $300-$400 is ridiculous at all.If I remember, I think that jobs pays 2 hrs a side just for the balljoints
