    The Toyota dealer quoted me $800.00 for the job done. They told me they noticed a clunking noise and that's what's causing it. They recommended front control arm bushings and alignment would be needed?

    Maybe because they also recommended an alignment as well plus they charge a lot for labor?

    Maybe. Over 150,000 miles on it?

    I only have 60k miles on the car. And will get a 2 opinion. $800.00 is ridiculous for an alignment and arm bushings job.
