Icon5 inspection failllll.. help!

So it looks like BOTH my front stabilizer links are broken! I'm not even positive what they are but I was told they're part of the suspension, and my truck certianly wont pass inspection without em being replaced. The shops supposed to call me today with prices, but i have no idea what a fair price is for this... any comments?

That's ridiculous!!!

I'm selling those for $10, not sure how much they are new, and you can do it yourself in 30 min. tops!!

Details on your truck?

Yeah they should be the same, I would just buy Seed's. Even with Express shipping it would be a fraction of the cost of them new.

unless these are the wrong part... they're only 8 bucks:
More Information for MEVOTECH MK7275
or
More Information for DEEZA DDL608

This is an easy thing to do yourself? Any suggestions/instructions/tips? I've got some pretty savvy jeep friends who I'm sure can figure this out
