Anyone know how $$$ replace rear swaybar bushings

I'm trying to get a idea how much it will cost to have my rear sway bar bushings w/links replaced ? Parts will cost about 65.00, concerned about labor?

There are two types of Elements in this world, ones that I own and ones that I don't... yet.

Should be like 2 hour of labor charge. They are super easy to replace though. You don't even need to jack up the car.

It's not bad as a worst case estimate.

I had worst case scenario in my driveway, no torch, hand tools only, and did the actual work, between cursing sessions and driving to get bolts and nuts, in an hour. The bushings cost under $15, 4 bolts with flange nuts under $5.

A professional mechanic with tools and a lift should be able to replace those iin 30 minutes or less, even if the welded nuts break free from the brackets and need to be torched off.

Will he charge less if the job goes faster and you give him all the parts that he could possibly need for the job?

No, it's $93 bucks and I'm furnishing the parts.

NOTE:
While they had it up on the lift, we seen the real noise, it was the worn out right frt lower control arm bushing. That's another $200 and they get the part.
I have just looked at a U-tube on it's replacement and it's a bugger so i'll gladly pay.
