Ok.. well there are two arms that have balljoints to the hub on the E90/1 - tension strut as they call it / lower rear front control price will differ across the two - depending on the manufacturer one in the region of £110 the other is around £83 mark.. both of which should be easily replaced by any competant garage - shouldnt take any more than a couple of hours labor time to be honest provided they actually diagnose the correct balljoint thats i should see the whole job being anymore then £150-£200 i would of to phone around local reputable garages for the best quote on the complete job inc parts and vat..
