Question about 2002 Honda Accord
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!
