find out if the shop is going to pass their parts cost along, or if they have a markup - you may very well save some taking your own parts to them (this may affect how they warranty the work however.)

just have a conversation with the mechanic - they know they have some customers that are legitimately on a tight budget while others can just drop a car off and say fix it without even asking about the cost.

but it's a false economy to skimp on parts when you're paying someone else for the labor and the risk involved with a part's failure is so high.
