    The dealer wants $600 to replace the rear control arm bushings! are they made of gold!

    has anyone a picture of the arm from say a manual?

    Also they want to machine the brake discs as they have hot spots. what are hot spots?

    vehicle has 60K miles on it.
    and 20K miles being towed behind an RV.

    other than spark plugs, tires and battery, everything is original.

    thanks all

    Dealer service departments are for warranty repairs only. Find a trustworthy, reputable independent shop near you.

    Hot spots occur when the brakes are overheated. This can happen due to a number of things, but I’ve mostly seen that it was due to driving habits. If they’re bad enough, they could cause the rotor to warp which will give you a vibration while braking.

    As for the control arms, it sounds like they’re going to replace the whole thing as an assembly, not just the bushing. This is just a guess though. I also don’t know what the labor rate is for that particular dealer, or the labor time for replacing the control arm bushings.
