Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your Dodge Ram. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. When you say 'choose the correct ball joint', are you looking for the part number, or are you looking for a recommended brand?

Part number or brand. The ones I have purchased just fall into place. No pressing needed
Dodge Mechanic: Todd M, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

I understand. Just a moment, please.

Here is the information that you are looking for. I am attaching the part and labor information for the ball joints. The part numbers are OE. The part pricing is from the manufacture and the parts can be found to be less expensive. Also, the labor pricing is listed in hours and depends on the hourly rate of the shop. I have also included the information for the control arm and replacing it, because replacing the complete control arm is usually the best route since in addition to having new control arm bushings, it will contain the ball joint.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
