What can I expect to pay

for the following job??

First off I DO NOT have the tools,capabilities, time etc etc etc to do this my self, that being said and out of the way here is my situation.

1: I need the inner and outer wheel bearings on both sides of the front of my truck REMOVED and replaced with the 4 new wheel bearings I have and the 2 seals.

2: my left front spindle and abs sensor are ruined due to the inner wheel bearing drying out and me not stoping the truck quick enough, I have a spare spindle and abs sensor I bought already and since the spindle has to come out anyways to replace the inner wheel bearing then I don't think I would be charged to just put in my replacement but I do expect a fair fee to replace the abs sensor with my new one while they are in there ANYWAYS.

So to summarize I basically need 4 wheel bearing replaced and a abs sensor replaced and I have ALL the parts needed inluding grease and a spindle nut tool to remove the huge nut.

Ford charges $90.00 and hour plus tax, assuming I DON'T go to Ford what is a good fair price to pay for this job?

The truck is currently NOT drivable because of the left front spindle BUT it can be rolled onto a flatbed tow truck to be taken to a place to be repaired.

Find a friend to do it for you and pay him. If he's a good friend he'll do it for free or real cheap to help you out... Provided you bring the beer, food and replacement parts and greases.

^^Yeah...I help my buddies out like that. If they wanna buy some shop supplies like brakeleen, shop towels or other things that are consumable I go for it. I usually settle for a cheeseburger. It really shouldn't take too long.
