Grass Valley, needing Balljoint help

I'm here visiting my friend, and on my way my front end went south. Thedriver side upper ball joint has shifted and the tow is all out.
Can you recommend a shop in the area to do repairs.

There's a thousand "Grass Valley" locations in this country...you need to be a bit more specific.

Check out Quality Automotive in Auburn, not too far from Grass Valley. They specialize in Ford diesels: https://www.qualityautomotiveauburn.com

We had our vacuum booster go out on the way down to visit some family in that area and they were able to get us in pretty quickly and had it replaced in a relatively short amount of time. They came recommended from someone else with an SMB who had positive experiences as well.

California,
I found a shop in Maryville that can do it called Harvey and Songes.
They quoted me $1500.00 for both sides, upper and lower ball joints. And both ends of the tracking arm.

Just want to throw it out there that one of the things that keeps me coming to read this site is the fact that everyone looks out for one another. Iíve never seen any negative post and itís refreshing. Have a happy Easter.

Sounds right parts alone would be $500-600.
