The money pit........

New upper and lower ball joints plus a couple of bushings.... 650.00 installed.
Would do them myself but I need the truck tomorrow for a job....... It's only money right
At least they are installing aftermarket parts with grease fittings...

When your truck is your work it takes a long time to make up for 650.00 in lost profit..

Although 650 seems like a drop in the bucket compared to having a new engine installed last month

Delete, maintain, and pray...... Or pay for a lower mileage truck still in warranty, extend the warranty and still perform the unholy trinity of d, m and p.
I apparently left off the pray part..lol
I had just bought the truck in jan when the engine went out in march. Didn't have much choice.
