Suspension Issue - Independent Shop? NY/NJ Area


Jul 19, 2021
Wood Ridge, NJ
So my 2015 Model S 70D started swaying a little and kicking the back end out a bit about a month ago. Got it inspected yesterday and turns out both rear toe links and upper arms are worn out and need to be replaced according to Tesla. The cost of parts is $500, but labor is almost $2200 (before tax). Question is - am I being overcharged for labor? Are there any independent shops in NJ/NY/CT/PA area that can do it for less? Parts aren't available for 3-4 weeks, so I'll have to wait anyway.

TIA for help and advice!

Hey Andy,
Any update on your suspension issue. Even I am looking for an independent shop that can work on suspension and doesn’t charge an arm and a limb.
