The stub axle and support is bent so I would change the complete unit with a unit from the wreckers . All wishbones and strut units depending on your suspension. Check for damage to the sub-frame where it all bolts to.

It's good to shop around for new tires, the mechanic may not have a good deal from the supplier. Therefore, he needs to charge more. Just shop around in your area for better deals on tires.
As for the other repairs, the first thing you'll need to get done is the front lower control arm ( the worn ball joint ). Worn out suspension parts will cause premature wear on the tires. Because, it would not be holding the tire steady and it would be basically " out of alignment ".
If I remember correctly, the whole control arm would have to be replaced, because the ball joint isn't changeable in the control arm. I believe that's why he's asking $700.
The mechanic again probably doesn't have a good deal on his parts supplier. I think it's too high myself. I would call around other shop for better prices. Other shops that have better deals on their suppliers will usually pass the saving to the customer.
