SOURCE: upper & lower Ford Ranger ball joints replacement

Approx.$250 in parts & rest is labor. Probably 3 to 4 hrs labor at most, even at 5 hrs labor, that's $100/hr labor. It must include alignment after the repairs, correct? Not sure what your going rate for labor is in your area. Probably wouldn't hurt to call around for a second opinion& estimate just to be sure.

if you have some mechanical knowledge, it is not really difficult.  It is just time consuming.  Pick up a Haynes manual and they will give you a step by step with pics in doing this.

SOURCE: How do I replace the upper ball joints in my 2002 Ford Explorer

The upper ball joints are replaceable without replacing the control arms. Use Moog K80008 ball joints and a ball joint press.

How do I remove hub off of the end of the ball joint? It is stuck on the tapered end of the ball joint.

You can buy a special tool for spreading ball joints. It looks a bit like a large tuning fork with beveled tines. Place the open end between the ball and the hub, and hit the other end with a heavy hammer. The joint will separate and you can then remove the hub.

How i change the joint ball on escape 2002

I have a 2002 Escape. The front lower ball joint is integrated into the lower control arm. You will need to replace the control arm. The good news is that the control arm is fairly inexpensive $30-50(?). I found the dealer had the lowest cost (weird).

You have to safety lift the car and get the tire off the ground.
Remove the tire/wheel, to get some room and light.
You need to remove the the ball joint connection first.... it's usually the hardest.
Remove the cross bolt and nut from the ball joint at the knuckle.
You may need to spread the "split" a little with a big chisel and hammer.
The ball joint stud needs to slide out of the knuckle.
Remove the other two connections to the "frame".
Here's a picture outside the car:

1996 mustang gt makes a reking noise when turning

There are several possible causes to your problem.

Most likely it is a ball joint.
A bad strut mount will make a similar noise. Sometimes dirt/rust in-between the strut spring and the rubber insulators can cause a creak.
If the environment is really dry or the rubber bushings on the car are really old, they can cause a creaking noise.

I would have it checked out because if it is a ball joint, it will eventually cause uneven tire wear and can even separate, resulting in total loss of control of the vehicle.
