I paid $90 for factory replacements when I had my 5.9, and $135 for XRF heavy duty ball joints for my Laredo. That was for all 4. I think the job took me 3 or 4 hours when I did it for the first time in the winter. If you can put a lift on, you can do ball joints. Really isn't that tough, and there are plenty of writeups available if you need a how-to.

"I guess I'd just run it?"
i've got a guy that wont charge you an arm and a leg, he does outstanding work, and he has 20 years of AMC experience and is also certified. he does almost all the work on my jeep, if you'd be interested in checking him out. he's off exit 17 on 400, in gainsville.
i found a place today that specializes in grand cherokees. i knew i was in the right place bc right when i walk in theres a painted mural of a 98 5.9 that takes up a whole wall hahaha pretty badass but these people seem really honest and cool. im ordering some iro upper adj. arms, an iro tie rod with rod ends, and maybe a new pitman arm and theyre also doing my upper and lower ball jonts and fixing the seals between my transfer case and trans. jeep should be running real nice after this.
is the jeep back? i almost let go of my xbox and made a trip to atl today to trade it for some soft eights...but decided to hold out b/c they were 15's. btw what is the name of this shop so i can put it on my board for future ifs and whens?
its at the place right now its called Best Jeep Repair under google its best jeep repair, real cool guys. Im getting the input seal of my transfer case fixed, TRES, pitman arm boot thing, upper and lower ball joints up front. I also just ordered my front adj. upper control arms from iro
got my car back today and the steering felt alot tighter and it wasnt as bumpy but i purposely hit a pot hole and i began to feel it fall into the DW. so i hope after i get these new control arms which should be here saturday and an alignment that it will go away and the ride will be good.
