2002 Volvo S60 Question: Cost to repair tie rods

 

Question

Does anyone know what the reasonable price is to repair tie rods on this vehicle? I'm afraid I need new ones but don't trust my dealer repair shop and don't know of another good Volvo shop.

    These do commonly become loose and need replacement. Your looking at about 1 hour labor per side plus alignment. The part is available from aftermarket company like Bilstein, and will be much less expensive than the dealer part. Look for a good European Independent shop, they can perform this job easily or this can be performed by a good tire shop. Check the directory for a shop in your area: http://repairpal.com/directory

    I'll say between parts & labor u are looking about 360.-, there is 2 inner and 2 outer tide rods 2 hours labor and front wheel alignment, I suggest that you set the rear trust angle to zero, it'll cost you like 20.-
