I have a 93 mercury cougar and the upper and lower ball joints on the right side kept making noises, and one day the upper and lower ball joints came completly of the ball socket on the right side. I would like to know how much it would cost to get this problem fixed on the right side?

    If you need the upper control arm (with ball joint) and the lower ball joint, plus alignment, it should run about $345.00 - $511.00 (not including tax, shop charges, diagnosis etc.). However since the ball joints came apart while driving, other damage may have been done. Make sure you have the ball joints on the other side checked out so this doesn't have the same problem!

    In my opinion, 400$ is too high, a ball joint replacement should only cost about 250-300$. Most garages charge by the hour, that's why you will pay more. Good luck.
