rear springs/rear discs/anti-roll bar

Took my 2004 c180 se Kompressor for a service the other day and to have a missfire fixed. The garage told me that the car had 2 Broken Rear Springs, the rear discs were worn and the front anti-roll bar is worn.
Could anyone here (uk) tell me if these are big jobs and if they are expensive to get done as i know nothing about cars.
Thankyou.

I'm afraid not. According to HM's decree dated 6 April 1976 any such information is classified top secret and cannot be shared with any persons who know nothing about cars.

My rough estimate for this repair, however, is £18,317. And 36p.

I suppose, you might consider asking the shop that looked at the car about whether this would be a big and/or expensive job. Or is that a bit too sensible?

Was the first time i'd used that garage, and when i got home and read the service book, straight away i noticed TWO items that they'd not bothered with on the service, so makes me think what else have they not bothered with? I find garages in the UK are difficult to trust, so i was hoping someone on here might be able to offer some advice as to what i should be looking to pay approximately. Was just after a bit of advice, didn't relise the site was just for smart arse, piss takers mate.

I suppose when you learn how to spell "realize", your opinion on this or any other subject might actually matter. I don't know to whom, but it might matter. I noticed you didn't answer the question on whether they advised you on either the complexity of the cost of the job in question.

Ha Ha, "realiZe". When you learn how to spell proper English you can become a pedant. Until then, leave it alone son.

It's "leave it alone, son", but I digress. Still no answer from the shop, huh? You could, I suppose, post your inquiry in the W203 section of this site, but I'm afraid they're even more sarcastic than I, so good luck.
