These are ball park figures based on book rate.
Using a $55.00 hourly rate, 2.0hrs upper 2.8hrs lower.
Parts and labor $264.00 lower $223.03 upper.
$487.03 + tax and allignment. Hourly rates differ from
shop to shop, And parts prices can depend on brand
and availabilty but this should be close.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: front upper ball joint replacement

The dealer's answer (if you are interested).......

The ball joint is pressed into the upper control arm and has a tapered stud for attachment to the steering knuckle. The ball joint stud is attached and locked into the steering knuckle using a special nut. The ball joint is a sealed-for-life type and requires no maintenance. If the ball joint is defective it will require replacement of the entire upper control arm.

Sorry.

SOURCE: How to change ball joints on 1997 2500 4x4 dodge diesel

Not hard, you'll need a special socket to get the axle nut off and getting the bearing out of the spindle is usually a real chore. Since it sounds like the spindle is already out, you might be able to do it in a press.

To get the ball joints out of the spindle, drive them out with a hammer. If you need to get the ball joint out of the axle, strike the axle next to where the ball joint taper is with a large hammer. That will usually distort the axle material enough (for a split second) to let the tappered section loose.

How do I replace the right ball joint on a 2000 Chrysler Town and Country?


If you want to take the easy route use the dorman-control-arm- 520-344. It cost about as twice as much as a ball joint by itself but you will not need any special tools to replace. If you just do the ball joint by itself you will need a ball joint tool to press the old one out and the new one in. Some parts store do offer free tool borrowing programs so its you call

I just had my daughters 2002 searing serviced in the area she goes to school. I had new tires and a front end alignment done for a little over 500.00 all done October 6, and now, maybe 1500 miles later...


yes definably should been taken care of before the alignment was done
u can' t get a accurate alignment done with loose parts up front (ball joints get loose before they break)
and under most circumstances ball joints don't totally fail in a 2 month period of time

Now if your daughter drives on a lot of rough roads or hits a lot of pot holes and ball joint was dry (not greased in long time) (alignment shop should at least greased front end parts if possible some factory and cheap aftermarket ball joints are sealed and u cant grease them) There a slight chance ball joint could failed that soon but i highly doubt it

Now should u go back to shop ?? call them and explian to them what happened and see if they will warranty there work if they will more than likely day u brought in your car they where busy and behind and it just got over looked
if they wont warranty there work i would go some where else they did bad job first time and wouldnt want them doing same again

Far as cost goes that a hard one to tell u cause shops labor rates greatly across the country and even from shop to shop in same towns
for cost i would make a couple calls to few shops and get a ball park figure for your area

Ball joint installation


Go with what the ball joint specs. Besides only 2 ft.lbs. on a ball joint won't make a difference. But the parts recommendation should be used.
