    Thanks for you help! Would it be cheaper if I bought the parts myself?

Not that much. I would say more like 700-750 with an alignment

    Yes because shops charge mark up on parts. But most shops won't install your own parts. If they do they usually mark up the labor.

I had my passat cc serviced and was told tie rods need replacement, my quote says front strut tops are noisy and link rods need replacement, are these parts also called the tie rods, is this a play on...


No, Paul, those are three different areas, or things. The tie rods connect to the wheel spindle that the tire is mounted on. That is for steering. The link rods connect the sway bar to each side of the front end- these are high wear items, often replaced.

The third: now the "strut tops" being noisy, this should be of concern to you, insofar as what are they doing about that? Ask them if that means replacing worn struts (quite an added expense), or checking the security of the top mounting-like loose bolts or nuts. I would want specifics on what exactly they mean. The strut tops are where the two front struts mount on the car frame, and usually found under the hood on each side, like 3 nuts holding the top of the strut, and the bottom of the strut is attached to the wheel spindle or wheel knuckle, same thing. So the strut at the wheel, moving up and down, strut absorbs the shock and diminishes it by a solid mounting to the frame- the strut tops. Hope this helps you understand a bit.

Replacement of struts costs


Zero if it's under Ford's warranty period.
=====
Front strut cost about $96+ each
Rear strut cost about $87+ each
The compression tool can be loan for FREE.
====== $400+ for the parts with taxes. ======
Labor for most shop is $75-$90 per hour (depending on location)
This is a 3-4 hours job.
A SHOP WILL RECOMMEND YOU TO DO A 4 WHEEL Alignment. $65 to $85
A good service writer will recommend new tires after a tire wear pattern inspection.
(YES,I'm a service writer)
An good shop will also inspect the tie rods and bushing free of charge.
======
Use your best judgement and review your budget before starting the job.

How much does it cost to have the front end work done?(Suspension)


Depends on how much needs to be replaced. I had my front end done last month at NTB Woodlands, TX. I had shocks, struts, ball joints (everything but tie rods) $1200.00. Mine is a 1997 Towncar. The tie rods were fine. I also put Michelins back on the car and it changed the ride to almost new and also takes the strain off the front end. I will never buy different tires again. The other tires were hard and actually caused wear and tear on the front end. Do some research and you will find alot of information. Cathy (Spring TX)

Is this a reasonable charge? Total = $350 : Left front Tie Rod alignment Left window switch Parts Labor


It sounds correct to me I paid $220 for a front end alignment with a new tie rod installed. A window switch alone is near $100 for the part

Play in front wheel


Take a look again at the outer tie rod upon moving the wheel side to side. It it does show play take it in and have it done. You will need a front wheel alignment afterwards if the tie rod is replaced. The cost to have this done can be from $200 to $300 depending where you live

Any info on tie rods


You have left and right inner tie rods and outer tie rods on your car.
You also have lower ball joints which can wear loose too....not to mention the left and right struts and upper strut bearings.

A cheap (China) tie rod may last only a year.(plastic inner wear points)
A good quality tie rod may last 10.(nylon and/or metal wear points)

Average cost for tie-rod replacement


Average cost for a tie rod is around 80-120 dollars depending on where you go. Then the alighnment afterwords which normally is around 79 dollars.

I would suggest buying the tie rod yourself and taking to a shop to install. Tie rods are normally between 20-30 dollars. Yourll save yourself money on the parts cost.
