#16 is around a $550 part. If you do it from the dealership, order it then see how fast that quote goes down just from the part cost.

Get the quote in paper first so they don't jack up your labor costs to compensate for the lost revenue in parts.

Thanks John for clarifying... I was freaking out myself if this is something I would need to do to rehaul my old suspension parts. Doesn't look like it in my case.
