Control arms are expensive, over $200 each. An independent shop may be able to do this cheaper, because the bushing can be replaced (but only with aftermarket parts, as Toyota only sells it the arms with the bushings). I bought the bushings for $40 per side and repaired it in an auto class. You only need a simple press (about $70 at Harbor Freight). Otherwise, expect about $200 labor per side.
