how much the labor costs to replace lower caster bushing / part # 48655-50012

My car has 179000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there - YourMechanic does not offer lower caster bushing (aka control arm bushing replacement as a service. Replacing bushings in aluminum control arms in the field is a somewhat risky procedure in the best of circumstances. YourMechanic recommends, and offers as a service, replacement of the control arm, with new bushings installed by the manufacturer. I recommend a control arm replacement to address this service issue, performed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location,and make this repair, getting you back on the road quickly.
