I have rattling like loose parts under the front right area of the car. Brought it to a dealership and they said I need a sway bar and end links as well as the inner tire rods. The estimate seems especially high. Could you throw out there what I would approximately be looking for on a price? Does this sound right that I need these repairs? I also need two front tires but have already replaced tires before and know there cost. Of course it was high too. At Sears I paid $116 for each tire incl. mounting and balance and they quoted $152.71 each.

WHAT DID THEY SAY WAS WRONG WITH THE CAR TO START WITH
They said it was normal wear and just that they should be replaced. I don't know if sway bar is actually broken.

HOW MUCH WAS THERE EST?
$1000 not including tires. $200 parts sway bar and end links, $300 inner tire rods, rest is labor. I think on parts they ate quoting me double
