Cost of control arm bushings?

'05 X5 4.4. How much should it cost to replace control arm bushings? Dealer quoted $650. I've yet to call local tire shops on a price.

Ahhh, okay...
DTML pump is installed in cars for emission compliance which pressurizes the fuel tank to check for leaks so I guess it "senses" emission failure!

Most likely it's the emission sensor that went off. I had a "service engine soon" light come on two weeks ago. Took it in and they had to replace the pump that pressurizes the fuel tank that check...

I also have '05 4.4. It's very easy to change the bulb. Just open the side cargo panel right or left. You'll see the bulbs attached to "white" bulb housing. There's three but the brake light is the...

'05 4.4, 61K miles. You guys should be driving this thing more often. It doesn't start falling apart until 50K miles.

Compared to the current gen X5, the GL550 is 9.5 inches longer, 7.5 inches wider and 3 inches taller. Not really close in size to the X5. It is a full size SUV. The X5 is still considered a midsize...

Maybe the GL320 or 450 but not the GL550. Have you seen the difference between a 450 and 550? The 550 has flared out fenders and standard 21" AMG wheels. It looks muscular and sporty. And I'm not...
