So my question to you, they quoted me 200$ for the part. Than another 200$ for install..
Is this correct?
Part is probably a bit much but $200 for install seems decent.

$200 is alot for a bearing but that's what dealerships do. I needed new front bearings for the ae86 and the price was high. I probably could have found cheaper ones online but i needed them asap so i paid up.

@OrbitalEllipses, @6-Shift, @kanundrum, When I used to work hands on in my shop I'd use many different types of gloves. I'd mainly liked working with nitrile gloves, mechanix gloves, cat gloves, but my favorites were clc gloves (still use them if needed).

This 220 Piece Mechanics Tool Set For $80 Is An Epic Value

I'm not a huge fan of even lightly complicated processes to score a deal, but this 220-piece Craftsman Mechanics Tool Set for $79.99 is worth it. That's a flat $70 off it's sale price of $149.99. You need to be a Craftsman Club member (see the free signup link on the product page) to get the starting price of $99.99 which is already a solid deal. Now stack both promo codes TOOLS15 and VALPAK5 for another $20 off to get it down to $79.99. Boom! My rule on Craftsman tool sets is that we need to average out to $0.50 or better per piece for it to be a value. So this one at around $0.36 / piece qualifies as one of the best prices I've seen. It's definitely going down as a no-brainer deal on a comprehensive basic tool set.

One of my favorite movies as well. Great cast.
I saw it way back. It's a really fun movie to watch.
I like this scene.

You will always save a crap ton by buying the part yourself and installing yourself (or having a friend do it). Shops markup big time because the majority of the general public doesn't know better.

I've done this job before on an e-350 ford van and it was real easy with the right tools.
