Does this sound like a good price?

Their is a guy that can get me upper and lower ball joints, and put them in for $587(us dollar). Does that sound about right? He said its $300 in parts and $260 in labor. I checked online and I can get the same parts for about the same price.

Can you not do it yourself? Thats a lot of cash for labor.

No Trent is just a post ***** lol...

But it's not a hard task man... Get new UCA and some lower ball joints. It really isn't tough at all. I did it on my 2wd 2000 when I lifted it.. Then take it in for an alignment. Save yourself about $200-$300.

I only have about 2 hours a day to work on it and I dont like messing with suspension parts like this. I often get distracted and forget to do something when putting something back together and I am afraid ill do something like that and something will break or the wheel will fall off.
I just feel much more comfortable when someone that knows what they are doing does something like this.
