The P-traps I would say probably $200-300 for both in all but cheapesat locales if plastic - but if you are replacing them likely galvanized or brass or cast iron, so I would expect probably more about $250-400 for two.

The drain stoppers - assuming you mean the pop-up mechanical stopper (not just rubber plugs) depends a LOT on the age and materials and availability of replacement parts - may be able to just put in a repair kit (seal, nut, arm and lever) or may have to replace the entire popup drain assembly - mechanism, tube, seal to bottom of sink and all which can run $30-100 each for the assembly depending on material, plus maybe additional $50-100 labor IN ADDITION to the P-trap replacement (because it connect between the trap and the basin) - so for two of those could be $160-400 additional on top of the P-traps.

Depending on what you have for plumbing, especially if old brass, bronze, or cast iron or galavanized steel, might be cheaper to just replace all the drain piping from basin to wall stickout, replacing all with new plastic pipe and parts - might get you well down into the bottom range of the $400-800 I gave you above. IF metal piping, the replacement parts are likelky to be plastic pipe anyway, though the popup assumbly I would ask for brass if I were you - more durable than all-plastic.

Plumbing is of course your Search the List category for this.
