What is the average cost of replacing the front two ball joints of a 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP?

I don't know anything about cars, except I'm having my ball joints (I believe all 4) replaced on my 2000 Ford Explorer and they say it will cost around $760. I !AnswerO.K. I work at Canadian tire in Hanover, and I did a little research for you. If you plan on replacing the two front ball joints at once, it will take about 2.8 hrs and at 68/hr that's about $190.40 plus parts. If you just want to replace one at the time it'll be about 1.5 hrs (this is by the labor book) and at 68/hr that's about $102 plus parts, so you are better doing both at once. Now the ball joints themselves are about $80 a piece depending where you go. Hopefully this gives you a general idea. Good luck!

Would it be wise to buy used ball joints?

never use used frt. end parts. its one thing for a used starter to fail and your car wont start but to be driving 60 mph and have a ball joint come apart is another If you know what to look for and not install worn out parts you will be fine, after all, every vehicle on the road has used ball joints. yes you are right. but the only way to check the wear properly is to install. what is the cost of new ball joints compared to used then the time it takes to install... again, put new frt. end parts on.. a ball joint costs 30.00. a used one is what? 20.00? If you are replacing damaged suspension parts because of an accident, you can purchase complete good used a-frames and spindles with ball joints from a respected used auto parts dealer, if you are short on cash. yes, in an accident where you have to buy the control arm, ball joint, spindal, rotor,caliper ect. as an assembly then yes. but the question was only replacing ball joints and again just replacing ball joints is not worth buying used stuff. spend $10.00 more and do it right.

Why wont the steering knuckle come free from the ball joints on a 1991 ford explorer?

If you have a factory steering knuckle, ford designed them for the ball joints to not be removable. If you are thinking that your ball joints are bad for some reason, you will need to get after market steering knuckles, and ball joints for replacement. Costly, I know but worth it. I suggest MOOG, I've always have had good experience with them.

You would like to know if there is a step by step instructions to replace the ball joints?

For step-by-step instructions on removing/replacing ball joints, refer to a Repair Manual (Haynes or Chilton) for your vehicle. Manuals are available for sale about $11-$14 at any auto parts store. Or you can look in your local public library to see if there is one available for checkout.

What would happen if the joint between your arm and shoulder was not a ball and socket joint?

If the joint between your arm and shoulder was not a ball and socket joint, you could not be able to move your arm. Ball and socket joints allow you to move in most directions. Because of this, you can move your arm up, down, side to side, front and back, and around in a circle. The ball and socket joint is one of the four major kinds of movable joints. (The four major joints are ball and socket joints, gliding joints, hinge joints, and pivotal joints in case you didn't know.)

Why does the car still shake after replacing tires?

There are a number of things that I know of that can cause this one. First off did you have an alignment done after replacing the tires? I would also suggest checking out your front end ie ball joints, tie rod ends, wheel bearings and so on. Good luck
