    I could feel a bump kinda when I turn my dad's jimmy almost all the way while driving and the ball joints have never been replaced since we bought it 8 years ago. Could this be the prob? This may sound stupid, but I'm not really sure what the ball joints are on 4x4's, anyone have pics? Thanks for any help. Oh yea, CaptCrunch i think said it would cost about $100 for parts and $150 for labor on each side while replying to my other post, is that what it will cost? it's an 80' with 10bolt. Thanks for the help.

    Please try the search feature, I found this in a few minutes using "Ball joints" as the search phrase. There should be lots of good info there.
