Unhappy Went to Ford...

Well I ended up taking my truck to Ford for a transmission leak and state inspection. Well then the tech called me and says that they fixed the leak and inspection. He also said the lower ball joints are shot and the upper ball joints will need replaced. Then he said it would need an alignment too. Well all said and done its going to cost me "only $1040" as he said

He said it would be 1200 but he felt bad because of the load of bs I told him about me not working much so he put it down to 1040 .

id take it to a good alignment shop to get the whole thing done. if you dont want to do the ball joints yourself.. that price is a little steep IMO..

the first time i ever changed ball joints it took me from 8am to 1pm and that was goofing off a lot and a trip to the auto parts store for a ball joint tool. basicly you take the wheel off and then the caliper then the caliper braket then your rotor then your locking hub then the actual hub with the 4 bolts on the back pull your axle out. all thats left you just have to unbolt the ball joints and bang them out of the axle and you get the steering nuckel then use the ball joint press and press the old ones out and then press the new ones in and re assemble.
