Michael arrived well within the interval for the repair. He was scheduled for 145, showed up at 155. The control arm repair went well - no issues It took me eight hours to do it myself on the drivers side He had the passenger side done in two And the ride of the car is greatly improved However I also had him replace a headlamp bulb in our front headlight that had blown out On a chevy Malibu its a very tough job You have to remove the front bumper to do it He replaced it fine, but missed the fact the connector was bad and shorting out the bulb The new bulb blew out two days after he put it in the new ones I wish he had looked over the unit more closely I took it back to our regular mechanic who found the problem quickly So yes the work was done, and done less expensively than the garage, but I had to have it done at the garage anyway

All about Strut Assembly Replacement

The strut assembly, an essential part of your car's suspension system, is attached to the front wheels and is used to absorb road shock, providing a smooth ride. Most cars made after 1995 have shock absorbers in the rear and strut assemblies in the front suspension. Older cars may have shock absorbers at all four wheels. Faulty or damaged struts affect the ride comfort as well as the braking effectiveness. The strut assembly, located in the front or rear of the car, is basically a shock absorber with a spring coil for additional support. The front wheels have the extra weight of the engine and need extra support to absorb shock from the road. The shock absorber has a piston and a cylinder that contains a gas or liquid substance. The spring is attached to the piston. When you drive over a bump, the piston inside the cylinder moves up and down against the gas/fluid and the spring, absorbing the shock from the bump. The strut assembly takes a beating over time, especially on bumpy roads. It will eventually start leaking the gas/liquid, leaving you with an unstable or rugged ride. With worn out struts, it is possible that the tires could lose contact with the road and/or the tires will wear out prematurely.
