Ok. It's a little close for me to tell for sure... but it appears this is a control arm bushing. The bushing is not repairable as a stand-alone item. The control arm as an assembly will need to be replaced (the new control arm comes pre-loaded with new bushings). The arm sells for around $273 and the Labor Time Guide calls for a little under an hour to complete the job. Labor rates vary from shop to shop, so what you pay for labor will effect the bot***** *****ne. For a job of this type, a "fair" labor rate can be anywhere from $85-$125 per hour.

Is it safe to drive
Expert:  Ron Z. replied 2 months ago.

I would not recommend driving the vehicle very far or very long, no. The control arm is a major part of the front suspension. If this is to complete break off, this will affect steering and vehicle stability. Be careful!
