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.

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.

U CAN REPLACE JUST THE BALL JOINT OR THEY COME WITH THE ARMS.DEPENDING ON MECHANICAL ABILITY AND TOOLS IT IS MUCH SIMPLER TO REPLACE THE ARMS

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.
