Should I replace my balljoints
Scotty, I have a 2006 Acura RL with 252,000 miles on it. I took it to my mechanic and he said it needs all 4 lower ball joints. This car has them integrated into the control arm so the price is around $3,000, since it’s a pretty rare car, there isn’t many aftermarket parts. Is it worth it to put that kind of money into such an old car?
Rear lower control arms are $200 a pop
Fronts (51360SJA023) are even less.
You're look at only about $690 in parts, and control arms are easy to install.
Go to another mechanic for a 2nd opinion.
