The mechanic said its about 1200.00 fix job here in Valdez thats crazy everything here cost way more then any were alse so i have to drive back to
anchorage ak to get it fix witch is way cheaper my question is how much would somthing like this cost me with labor an all ?

Your cruiser has CV joints,and they are not serviced seperately.New axles from Mopar will run about $400.00 for both of them.Our local NAPA sells them for $200.00/pair.Labor should not run over 4 hours @ whatever the local labor rate is($85.00/hr in our shop).
