Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome!My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question.
Ball joints and axle shafts do not cause a roaring when they go bad. They cause clicking or clunking when they go bad. Based on what your telling me, it sure sounds like the wheel bearings in front have gone bad. (one or both of them).
The price will vary depending on several factors. Here are the factors that I am talking about.
One wheel bearing compared to both fronts will determine the cost.
The shops labor rate
The parts (where the parts come from)
The part mark up the shop uses
However, I will give you an approximate cost based on my experience.
It is is***** the cost may be cheaper than if it is*****(depending ont eh bearings and set up in the front)
If you have tapered wheel bearings in the front rotors I would say the price would be about $150 to $200 bucks for one side.
If you have a sealed hub assembly with***** the price will be a bit more. I would say $250 to $300 per side.
