Question about 1998 Volkswagen Beetle
What is the general installation price for this part?
For the driver side, it is about 1.5 hours of labor to change the control arm and/or bushing (since th bushing is in the control arm). For the right side, it is about 2 hours of labor. So, the cost depends directly on the hourly labor rate charged by your shop. For example, at $50 an hour (good price these days), if they were to do BOTH sides, the labor cost would be $175. The control arm bushings are about $25 each (per side). And, the Control Arm itself, if you needed to replace it (very unlikely unless the car was in a wreck), is about $80.
