Wh1t3nukle will become famous soon enough

I agree with all the posts above. Do it yourself assuming you are also able to remedy the situation yourself.

Did you have them show you how each part was needing replacement? I always have, if taken to a shop, have them show me exactly why.

I'm surprised they didn't toss in the unit bearings...typically you change those same time as the ball joints.

Ujoints for the axle shafts themselves are not that expensive. You can pull the whole unit bearing and axle shafts out as single unit. I paid a shop to swap the ujoints $30 total. Just carried them over to them.

I don't see any problem going with Napa. Online I went with for unit bearings (Timken) and for balljoints.

I'd leave the track bar alone right now as well as the shocks. Those are easier to deal with compared to the BJs.
