I took my xterra in to get left and right upper control arm bushings and ball joints replaced, I provided the parts.I was quoted roughly $250. I got a call saying that they could not remove the bushings from the control arm, and I needed a new one. Being pressed for time, and only having one vehicle, I agreed. I asked them to save the old parts so I could look at them. What I saw was nothing short of horrific. Even if they had been clever enough to get the bushings out, what was left of the control arm was so mangled from whatever hammer and pry bar they had used that the new bushings wouldn't even fit in their bore. What I ended up with was only the left control arm replaced as an assembly and a bill for $375. I am an aircraft mechanic, and generally would have done the work myself, but due to time and space constraints, opted to farm out what I thought to be a reasonably simple task. If I so willfully damaged a component, I would be sent for a drug test, brought back to the hanger, screamed at for an hour or three, and then fired. That being said, the twice marked up, chinese replacement part appears to be installed correctly, but I have yet to check torque on any of the fasteners. Note: I chose the option of biased customer because I know the difference between good and poor workmanship, and for what they charge, I expected them not to be so completely defeated by some bushings.
