2006 F250 Ball Joint Replacement
I am getting new tires put on the truck today. Along with that, I was going to have the alignment checked.
Well, the tire place just called and said I need a ball joint replaced on the left side. They quoted me $275 for parts, $210 for labor, and $55 for an alignment.
How much shopping around should I do, or is that decent price for the work?
I called my brother-in-law, who runs a shop that specializes in tranny rebuilding, and he said that replacing a ball joint in my truck requires a few tools that he doesn't have. So, since he can't do the work for me, I'm likely to let the tire place (also a repair shop) do the work for me, unless you folks think the quote is ridiculous.
