So I let my dad drive my car for fathers day...

Really tough fathers day boys... the control arm on the passenger side snapped clean.

This is my daily driver and I don't have the time to fix it this month so I'm considering getting a trusty mechanic shop to do it for me. Any ideas on how much this might cost?

v if anyone wants to take a look

The control arm that is broken is the tension strut. I have some Meyle HD Tension struts that are new in the box. I'm in Toronto, PM me if you're interested.

$100 or less for the part. I'm guessing 2 hours labor plus $100 for alignment

How on earth did he manage to break the tension strut so clean off like that?
