Replacing lower Ball joints on honda accord 2002 price estimation...

Went to an auto shop to do my state inspection and they failed it saying the lower ball joints had to be replaced in order to pass the test. They estimated it to 544(labor) + 96(parts) + 100(wheel alignment, which is mandatory after ball joint replacement) to a total of $742. Is it really that expensive? Do i have to take it to another shop?

Generally no tool is required. If you use a "pickle fork" you will risk damaging the dust boot.

Have you tried whacking the spindle right near where the ball joint stud comes through? This will take a few good shots to break it loose.

Be careful not to hit the threads!

2002 honda accord rides hard over bumps and potholes little to no bounce what so ever and standing in front of the car the passenger side looks lower than the drivers side plus alignment is off. wondering...


It would be very tough to advise you without being able to inspect the car in person.
Bounce is controlled by the struts and shocks. If one side is lower than the other, the common cause is a weak spring on the strut.
If a control arm fails, the car usually drops to the ground.
I would take it to two different tire shops and get some estimates.

NEED NEW BALL JOINTS WHAT PARTS WOULD I NEED


Ball joints come as upper and lower. Requires at least a ball joint separater tool and small hand grinder along with basic hand tools. Some lowers are pressed in/out and require either a c-clamp style press or to remove control arm and take to a machine shop to be pressed in using a floor press. Parts are ordered by vehicle make, ball joints run in the $25-$40 range per joint. All you need to do is go to the parts store, tell them what vehicle and they can give you the proper joints you require. 2 upper joints and 2 lower joints. (1 each on each vehicle side). Not and easy job, but not impossible to do at home. Joints for your vehicle should be in stock at most auto parts stores.
Call around for price and availability.

2002 Honda Civic LX Front Lower Ball Joint Removal/Install.


I had a question i bought a used control arm for a 2001 honda civic compared it to the original and everything was the same except the part where the ball joint goes into is a few mm thicker on the control arm. Beedless to say i got it in but i had to over tighten to get the nut in all the way. I thought this would stop the rattling sound when i hit a pothole bit its still doing it and i fear the control arm is the incorrect one what other honda has the same control arm as the civic?
