Need some advise for my 2007 4Runners LCA bushings and PS rack

So were going on a long road trip in about a month and I have my 4Runner at a local Toyota only repair place I trust a lot getting a look over. I just got a quick phone call saying my steering rack is leaking badly and the lower control arm bushing are shot. Now, before yall say do it yourself.... know that I would, but I have had two spinal fusions and cant anymore. I use to be into off roading a lot as well as doing my own mods, alas some of those days are gone....

Anyway, my mechanic is getting back to me in the AM with estimates but I thought Id hit yall up with a couple of questions. Is there any other preventative stuff that should be done while in there? Wont he be in the vicinity of the control arms anyway doing the steering rack? Any idea what this is going to come back costing? Im in the DFW of Texas. Thanks for the help guys! BTW, my 4Runner is a 2007 V8, 4x4 Limited with 184k on it.

You may want to do fresh wheel bearings if theyve never been done.

If your car has seen a lot of water Dznuts has a good point...

I would say check the lower ball joints if he is taking the lower control arm off that is the main contact point so he is halfway there. Check your CV's make sure the boots are in good shape and are not torn if you are 4x4.

Be prepared for an expensive quote....

In total for a steering rack and replacing LCA bushings Id say the quote will be over 2 grand.
