I went to the junkyard and brought my own parts in. There were two pieces. Mine were rusted out because the air condition was leaking. This shop charged me almost $600.for the labor. Was this fair?

    well to late to ask now. depends on what the repl and what you call sub frame. sounds high but if they did a good job and your happy does it really matter. its over and done drive on and enjoy

    That was a fairly high price Goldie Girl. It would have been unfair if they did not tell you the estimated price before the repair was done...It would have also been unfair if they charged you for the labor but DIDN'T replace the parts.
