Ur live in Bubai... J/K LOL

But some of that you could have done yourself and some you could have replaced with aftermarket parts= big time savings. Either way going to a dealership for maintanence is out for me.

2012 WK2 SRT8: gloss black stock wheels on 305s / 5% tint all the way and 40% on the windshield / RM mid spring / black ops end links / Bwoody adjustable ball joints / SPC Lower Control Arm Camber Kit / BWoody Rear Adjustable Arm Kit / SW s-tube exhaust no cats no resonators / SW long tube headers / 274 comp cam / CNC ported heads / 90mm TB / LMI CAI / some BT stuff / 465rwhp

what was their reasoning for replacing the upper control arms? as far as i'm concerned those should only be replaced when the upper ball joints are going bad. sway bar bushings you could have easily done yourself, a pretty simple project if you ask me.

i think you got mugged, a little. $2500 for all of that is a LOT.
