E36 Repair Cost Inquiry

Hello, I just wanted to know if anyone could give me an approxiamate price quote for certain repairs on an e36 323is.

The repairs im interested in are:
1) New bushings
2) New rotors and
3) New control arms

Are any of these repairs DIY? Or would you recommend a BMW specialist deal with it? Also, are aftermarket parts available for these types of repairs?

Any information is helpful and very much appreciated!

Thanks

I think I saw a pair of control arms & bushings for sale in the parts section.... YOuTube has a lot of good videos on repairs.

Thanks for the info.

rdtx - Ya I meant the control arm bushings.

Any idea of how much this will cost me including labour and parts if I took it into a shop?
