My guess (without looking it up at Autozone or NAPA) is $300 to $600 plus a front end alignment. It depends upon whether you buy quality or get-me-by parts. Are you sure that this is a job you want to tackle without automotive experience? You're talking about the major components of your Front Suspension and steering. Not to mention that you're probably going to have to tear down and reassemble the front brakes as well.

AND there is probably more to examine and replace while you're at it like tie rods.etc. Like Tracy was implying - it isn't a job for a beginner BUT you can't learn without trying. BUT I DON'T MEAN TRYING ON YOUR OWN - get someone who's a pal with experience there with you- you supply the time,the parts,the beer. And after all is replaced you still need to take it for an alignment 'cause you ain't doing that in your driveway!
