Question Asked: Lower Ball Joint price does not match dealer / other shops quoting. Who's right?

I called Ourisman Jeep Alexandria, Chantilly Jeep and Merchants Tire in two locations. Told the ball joint and the lower control arm come together. Parts and labor Merchants said $900. to $1000. and the dealers said $1500. and $1100. So who is right? I am guessing your online quote is a standard ball joint replacement without changing the lower control arm. Everyone I called said the ball joint separately can be purchased from Moog however no one will install it except as a combined unit due to liability. This is just so predictable for an AMerican made car run around.
