Hello All, At 30,000 miles, I'm told I need my ball joints replaced for @$700!! This is like hip joint replacement for a 12 year old. Any comments? I am the owner of a 2006 ford escape, purchased used in Jan 2009, used gently (I think)
Not unheard of on some vehicles. Depending on maintenance and how many times those wheels have kissed the curb they could be due for a change.
A second opinion from another garage never hurts of course and you may even find a better price. Welcome to the City!
