Replaced all 4 ball joints and repaired inner CV joint on the passenger driveshaft after a passenger side lower ball joint snapped on my girlfriend's car. Passenger side took be about 10 hours, driver side only took 2.5 hrs after knowing what I was doing. Lots of helpful repair videos on youtube! Save yourself some bucks! Type in your year, model, and repair need into google and watch a few videos on the repair, then go do it!

Got my grandmothers car free and clear but knew there would need to be some front end repairs due to the fact it was not driven and had corroded to a certain degree bc there were no grease fittings. Ended up needing ball joints which came in kit, pitman arm, idler arm and tire rod ends plus they undercoat the car bc of minor rust damage and an alignment. Was more than an individual shop owner but cheaper than dealership and the work oys guaranteed foyt ary least a year so I was happy. Essentially paid 1500 bucks for a brand new car.

Ok - from the prices I'm seeing on here. I definitely got jipped! I'm a female, so I wouldn't have known what to expect in pricing. Also, later found out there was a recall on the lower ball joints on the Jeeps. Nice, huh...

I was totally shocked when presented with the invoice. I was expecting a total around $1000 for this repair after receiving a quote for this and a few other items. The dealer's explanation was that the other items were not part of his overall quote. My advice is to make sure that you shop around prior to any repair and avoid the dealerships.

Went there to get new tires and alignment fixed because mine had worn unevenly. Come to find out that it was caused by loose ball joints. The new joints cost $471 but all together: 4 New LT tires, new ball joints, alignment service and an oil change cost $976. Im happy with that.

Driver's side lower ball joint replaced. Parts 96 + 5(shop parts?), labor 87, tax 18. No alignment (just had it aligned a few weeks prior).
Mustangs seem to be notorious for ball joint problems. Mine has 80k miles, but started 'shaking' on the highway at 60k. Burned a set of tires in that 20k by not having it done sooner.

The Lower Control Arm had already fallen and the lower balljoint was done. Since the car is from MA there was a lot of salt corrosion which resulted in more labor. Price also included a 6 month/6000mi 4 wheel alignment.

I found this site helpful. I received a quote of $145 at the dealer and wanted to know how the price compared. Of course, I always wonder if it really needs repair or if I'm being "taken", if the problem isn't obvious... But they flunked my inspection so it probably is a problem...

I've replaced ball joints on both my 01 Boxster and my 86 Volvo 240. The Volvo cost me 30 dollars and about an hour labor for the two front wheels. The Boxster about $380 (with tools) and about 3 hours labor total for all four wheels. I replaced the ball joints and 2 bushings on each wheel and had to buy a ball joint separator. Make sure a shop (who should be able to do the work more efficiently than me in my driveway)doesn't charge you for me than that.

My wife took the truck to Firestone to have the tires we purchased there (Bridgestone) rotated. The mechanic stated that the ball joint had to be replaced on my 2002 Dodge Ram 1500. The price seemed high but we had it done anyway. We use the truck a lot. It has 78,000 miles on it. I don't have the breakdown but I know they had to do an alignment also.

I bought the upper ball joint w/ control arm MYSELF online for ONLY 279.00 !!! compared to the Lexus dealership charging $518.00 !! Sears was charging me $702.00 for repairs because of there absurd Parts & Labor Price mark-ups. So I took the car to a private owned auto repair business & $aved $329.00 !! My advice is by your own parts online & you'll SAVE alot ! "Spend Smart"
