depends if the mechanic sprays themselves with brake cleaner in the eye mid-job. I would say on your rust free truck 4 hours.


Here is the tutorial on the joints: http://forums.lr4x4.com/index.php?showtopic=5601

Depends on the labor rate of the shop and what parts they are using. I would expect around four hours of labor but wouldn't be surprised if a shop charged more.

They want to charge me 8 hours of labor because they couldnt find the cause of the issue for... 3 months.

Not looking to price it myself or rip the shop off. I want to pay what is fair for the job.

My shop just tells me to pay them what I think its worth...

but if i were broke and needed parts...I'd just wheel with the NoVa crew...and have them fix it on the trail.

I would say so. Its tough to price out labor on a Defender as a Land Rover tech unless you have done the job before. There are always speed bumps along the way including everything from wrong information/parts supplied by Land Rover to items screwed up by the last person that did the job. What are they charging you for the 3 months of diag time?
