1998 Chevrolet Astro Question: Idler arm replacement
Answer #1hemicuda April 20, 2009, 17:54Master
I show a time of 1.1 hrs without alignment and the parts cost AC Delco $ 146.96 each so the price of $560 is about right

IDLER arms cost 38.00 at napa, search for a lessor labor rate. lots of private mechanics can do one in app. .5 hours. commercial shops all go by a LABOR MANUAL THAT HAS BEEN AROUND FOR EVER. ALSO COMM. mech. HAVE LOTS OF OVERHEAD.
