had one more question, now that i have the quote, would it be advisable for
me to ask the repairman to give me an itemized bill, such as, the cost and
brand of parts they are using to replace the bad ones, and the labor
charges? Thank you so much for your help :) if anyone wants to chat with

From what you said in an early post and the given mileage, it is a good
possibility the parts are worn. I not sure what they mean by bad axle. The
rest I understand. Ask them to see the book for labor charges. The
replacement of each part will have an estimated labor charge.
For example struts may actually take 15 minutes per side to change but the
book may call for a half hour of labor. They will charge you a half hour of
Not having the car repaired will cost you more in the long run and may even
leave you on the side the road with your kids. A tie rod failure could lead
to an accident.
