Rather than assume the ball joints need replacing because someone told you so; or even "showed you" that they were loose by prying on the suspension with a long bar; it may be well worthwhile to take the vehicle to a different independent shop and get a second opinion. The "bad ball joints" scam is one of the oldest and most common rip-offs in the automotive industry.If you don't know of a shop you can trust on this; click the "answer this question" button under this message, and type your postal zip code in the box that appears. Then click the "submit answer" button. I'll try to suggest some good local shops. Thank you.
