Local Chevy dealership quoted $2600 for parts and labor for the above front end rebuild! No thanks I'll pass.

I was quoted a few years back 1650.00
Upper/lower cont. arms
Idler arm
Inner/outer tie rods
Alignment
So at that point I decided to buy all the parts myself
Upper cont. Arms 86.00
Lower cont. Arms 169.00
Idler arm 39.00
Inner/outer tie rods 80.00
Alignment 79.00
My total 453.00 from rockauto shipped to my door in 3 days. In time for my weekend

4 hours out of my day including lunch working on my Blazer something I have fun doing anyway plus saved 1000.00
I used to own a shop so I do understand "PROFIT" but I also like the word "SAVINGS"
