When trying to get my alignment adjusted, the mechanic told me that my tie rod would have to be replaced before the alignment could be worked on. I have been quoted everything from $150 up to $450 for this part by different car shops in my area. What is a reasonable amount to expect to pay for this part?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Laurel, The could be quoting you original equipment from the factory prices, or an after market part. It depends on the parts warranty, and if you want an original piece made by the manufacturer. AJ Pierce

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Laurel, $60-80 for an OEM part is about right. Remember that they are also adding labor, which could be up to 2 hours and then they might be adding the alignment afterwards. Ask what is being covered by the price. I would say that the whole thing could definitely be around $300 total. Lori Johnson
