    4Wheelparts Oakland qouted me $435 to put on UCA's with alignment. That seems a little high to me. I am capable of doing th install myself but I have to get it aligned so I thought "what the heck I'll just see how much it would be just to let them do it." Apparently they charge $145 an hour plus another $145 for the alignment.

    For Cali that price seems kinda low, I know shop rates around here can be anywhere from $90 to $120 an hour. I figure Cali double or triple. If you don't feel like doing it have them do it and assume the liability, but personally I hate 4WheelParts. There the motorcycle shop rejects.

    I called the local toyata dealership and they said they would do it for almost $80 cheaper. I knew that price was too high

    Just an update. I went back to 4wheel parts to get a coilover wrench and I told the guy there about getting a cheaper deal at the toyota dealer and he said that they would do the install for what ever the dealer quoted me. I just decided to have the dealer do my install and my oil change at the same time

    Putting on my uca's was a piece of cake, 16 dollars at harbor freight for the ball joint seperator and that was it. The worst part was bending the fender out a little to get the bolt out. The alignment at my local dealer is only 39 dollars.
