dodgeguy will become famous soon enough

I'm not sure about the newer models, but on my second gen, the ball joints were riveted on.
I changed mine a couple of weeks ago, and it took forever.
I had to grind off the heads of the rivets, drill them out, and then pound them out with a hammer.

I would take it and get a quote.
If, like me, you were quoted $1400, do it yourself.
But if you get a quote for less than $600 or $700, let the shop do it.
"If it's smaller than a 5-cyclinder, it's just a glorified motorcycle engine."
