Default Need new Stablizier Links....

So I hit a pot hole pulling out of the gas station last week and I finally got around to taking to the shop to have them put it on the rack. They told me it was the stabilizer links and quoted me $140 parts and labor..does that sound right? He told me I would have to replace both (50 each and 40 labor). Also how hard of a job is this if I were to try and tackle it on my own (or with some help) because when I looked online for the part its only showing as a 5-10 dollar part (Moog). Thanks guys!

The parts cost seems extremely high. Even the dealer only charges about $17 for them. They are easy enough to replace yourself. This is a link to the procedure.

I'm in agreement on the price being high. Can you get a picture of the broken parts for us. In case something else is broken as well.
