I don't know what it would cost to have it installed, I do my own work... just put ball joints in the left side of the red truck on friday, and still need to do the right side...
However, the cost of all the parts seems reasonable.... I'd buy it if I was in need of all the parts listed, or was doing a complete rebuild of the front end of one of my trucks.
I try to buy my stuff at the local Advance Auto Parts, buddy of mine works there, and 'warrentees' stuff out for me most of the time, so the cost isn't really compairable!
Tie rod ends are easy enough to do yourself, but require an alignment after... the ball joints are a little more involved, but I've made the tools I need to do it myself in a reasonable amount of time, and don't mind doing it. I have no idea what a shop would charge to do it all for you...
