0dy '02 with 110K and had the baby in the shop for routine maintenance. Got "the call" from the Service Advisor that my front compliance bushings were both broken through-and-through. To replace...'Bout 520 bucks. I asked him if it were a safety issue to not replace and he said no, just to understand that's the reason the ride might be a little clunky and that tires might wear irregularly and alignment may not hold. I let him do the job and asked hin later upon pickup to show me what was replaced. I was shocked that it was 520 bucks to replace what looks to me like two large rubber washersm. Apparently it takes a lot of labor to get to them.
Could I, or should I have saved the money? Is it a safety issue? Did I get ripped off? Any opinions are greatly appreciated.
