1998 Ford Expedition Question: cost of repairs

Can an honest mechanic please give me an estimate as to how much it would cost to replace the idle arm,4 rotors and front brake pads on a 98 Eddie Bauer Expedition? Thanks! -
Answer 1
You did not mention if you have a 4x2 or 4x4...so I'm give you a basic idea. Idler arm - $180 parts, $75 labor. Then alignment - $80. Brakes - front pads and labor - $230. Rotors $200 front. Rear rotors only - $250 parts and labor Total - $1015. Give or take with the price of parts in your area, and the price of labor in yoru area. -

bigdan71, An honest and professional mechanic should ask you to bring in your Expedition and check your brakes totally to make sure no "hidden " costs occur to give you an almost exact price. I say almost because although we are 99% of the time on the money with our estimate nobody is perfect. Also do not forget to compare apples to apples. Call us to bring your SUV in for a free estimate. 201-333-5480 -
