Default Cost of work

Realistically what am I looking at for four ball joints, both front hub bearings and misc seals etc.. 2006 TJ 193,000 miles. it goes in next week and I don't care for any depressing surprises. My tax return was supposed to go for other stuff.

Thanks for any input.

All that stuff is fairly simple to do. I'd check out a couple of you tube videos and do it yourself. If not, Scott is a great guy and does awesome work. Sometimes accepts payment in the form of beer!

some rough figures based on my experiences

ball joints $120 or so (set of 4)

$125-175 for wheel hub/unit bearing assembly (each)

at least a couple hours in labor

+ the other shit that is found. 4-link and track bar bushings, steering joints...

Get Moog ball joints and Timken bearings off Amazon. Cheap and usually prime. Take parts to Scotts and save yourself a shit ton of monies

and while you have the bearings off, might as well replace those axle joints.
