tell me about it when your done if it solves the problem thankx

I have a 96 Inifiniti G20, just had new calipers, rotors, brake pads, (all 4,) and drivers side lower ball joint to the tune of 800.00, but they said it still needs a king pin and they can't find the part...I'm having a hard time understanding how you can fix the brakes for 800. and then still be looking for the last part to complete the job, so does that mean the brakes aren't really fixed??.....can anyone help me understand this? And yes, I'm a girl :)
