Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Elizabeth, Considering both these procedures require a lot of labor, I would recommend that you obtain multiple quotes for these repairs. That way you have more of an idea, what is a fair price. Dealerships have a tendency to be higher than a common repair facility. Hope this Helps!

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Elizabeth, Check out this site www.repairpal.com. It will give you an estimated repair cost for your area. You can also call around and ask what other shops will charge for this work as well. Lori Johnson
