Front Steering Knuckle Replacement
My experience with bad ball joint repair. Noise from underneath the car traced to a bad left ball joint. The repair requires replacement of the whole steering knuckle/balljoint as it's one integral unit.
The steering knuckle was $484 plus $180 labor. Ouch! The repair was by the dealer that I bought the Jeep from.
Afterward I got home, checked the price of the part on Rock Auto; appeared to be about the same price, but I noticed that the part was listed as "out of stock." Hope this doesn't mean there's a design or material problem, since there's another one on the other side!
