I need all my front control arms replaced on my QX56. I have the parts already.

I'm a marine mechanic and will trade services.

Let me know.

yeah I could do it, but you'd have to sand off my old bottom paint, and regelcoat it.

The general consensus of the older guys on my truck site is that suspension work beats you up. You need Ibuprofen and a couple days to recover.

This is not an apples for apples kind of deal! You need to list what your looking for, though I think a little far fetched here, you might want to just start paying for shit!

I'm bartering here. You know, trading services? I think automotive work is cheaper than marine. My services are more valuable than what I'm asking for in trade.

I can pay a shop to do it, yes. And someone will pay me more to have something done on their boat. Just trying to give someone here a good deal.

If someone had a shop, it's a no brainer. A lift and pneumatics make it easy. That's kind of what I was looking for.
Heavy suspension work is never a no brained, which is why you are seeking someone to do it. This is easily a $1500 to $2000 job.

That's how easy it is. If a shop is charging $2000 labor for this, you're getting majorly RIPPED OFF!!!
Then do it yourself. BTW those look like cheap ass stamped steel control arms.

I would do it myself but those back bolts are tight as ficht, even with a breaker bar. Hence the need for pneumatics.

That's a youtube video. Whether or not it's a quality part has no bearing on replacement difficulty.
