Hi, went to my mechanic today to check out the noise coming from the wheels. He said that the ball joints may be getting bad, one has broken with no more grease inside and the other going the same path too. It is going to take me 250-300 to get both side fix. Is it reasonable?

Thanks.... :???:

That sounds decent to me! A dealer up here wants $650Can for one side lower rear control arm $346 plus labour Independent garage cost is $ 700 for both sides

I saw some OEM balljoints on Ebay for about 30 bux a pair.... They aren't that hard to change yourself, if you have basic tools. The only special tool you need is a ball-joint sepperator, it looks like a big two-pronge fork. It cost me 10 bux at Checker... :D
