The previous thread on this subject has been closed. Read through it and just had a couple of questions.....

Can anyone list the parts they were charged for, so I can just cross-reference it with what the shop I'm takin my baby to is charging me for.

I plan on ordering all the parts myself and taking it to a professional...I don't have this much know-how ....yet.

Do you have anyone at all with experience that can help you? If you do, I'd definitely do it yourself. I learned a sh!t-ton doing mine with the help of someone that knew what they were doing. Not to mention the money that would be saved.
