2002 Ford Mustang Question: Inner Tie Rod replacement

 

Question

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?
