Question cost to replace rear control arm bushings

So I did a search but did not find a speific answer. Has anyone had this done? I can not do it myself because of time and other constraints. I think my upper rear control arm bushings are shot. How much will it cost to have them replaced?

Are you sure that you can't do it yourself? It's a real easy job. I just bought a pair back in January for about $40 ea @ O'Reilly's. Then I had the alignment checked.

A garage is going to want at least a few hundred dollars for this. Fyi, the upper control arm bushing has a funny keyed bolt hole that is off center. And this hole is too close to the edge and mine was cracked in two places.

They sell the rear control arms also? Do you have a part number? How long did it take you?

Oops. I just rememered that I used a press to put the bushings in the upper control arm. You'd need to take 'em to a machine shop. I couldn't tell you how long it took. I replaced just about everything in the rear suspension. I still think it'd be cheaper to do it yourself.
