I need to replace the ball joints on my car.


Answer by  MehulHathi (50)

The cost of replacing upper and lower ball joints will be typically between $15 to $30 per ball joint. There will be total of 4 ball joints which will need to be replaced. Labor cost will vary by mechanic and usually needs 4 to 5 hours of labor work to complete this task.

If you have a mechanic replace your ball joints it should cost anywhere from $500 to $1000 depending on the year,make, model, and the complexity of the job. You could also do it your self for around $500.

I had one done when discovered during a suspension repair. It took 5 whole mins for the balljoint. The part was $40 and the SOB shopowner tried to bill me $110 extra labor (+$200), when originally told ENTIRE job would be $116. Total fraud and I reported him to Visa.

The cost of having a mechanic replace upper and lower ball joints depends on the make, model, and year of the car, but usually ranges between five hundred and one thousand dollars. You can do it yourself for a lot less money. Do-it-yourself kits cost between five hundred to six hundred and fifty dollars.

Replacing upper and lower ball joints costs about 3-4 hours of labor. Exact price depends on the labor charge per hour and the cost of the parts

This is impossible to say. I would have to know the specifics of the car as well as where you lived. If you want an estimate you will need to call around to local shops and have them give you a quote.
