Would it not be easier just to buy the control arms with ball joints and bushings?

For labor, I would charge the same price as the total of the parts, then might add a couple of hundred of dollars.
Or 50 bucks a hour straight time.

For labor I'd look up the labor time in the book, then multiply that by my shop rate. Add 1-3% for shop materials.
If you preset your shop rate and use book time, then you don't have to worry what others are charging.

If i'm supplying parts i charge somewhere between my cost and list.



If people don't like your price then let them go elsewhere. Figure a shop rate and stick to it, thats my opinion.

Upper ball joints can only be serviced with the control arm. On that note, labor for the ball joints and tie rod ends alone is roughly 8 hours.

You must be working "on the side" because there is no way you're paying any shop overhead with that price.
