OMG, the dealer said they'd charge me a mere $525 to replace my left inner tie rod. Is that the actual price? That can't be right. Even on here, the estimate is 245 from the dealer, which I was prepared for, not over 500. How much should I really pay for this?

Shouldn't be that much - unless their hourly rate is about $250. Official labor guide: Inner Tie Rod F6SZ3280BA $66.78 Inner Tie Rod One Side 1.3 Hour I guess they will perform a wheel alignment too, I wonder how much they charge for that? Should be around $80-100. So 1.3 x their hourly rate. + 66.78 + wheel alignment Could you share the details of the estimate with us? Zee
While steering, if you hear a clunk or a rattle, or if you experience premature tire wear, this could indicate the inner tie rod ends are loose or worn and will require replacement.
