Ball Joints

I just purchased a used K1200gt and missed the tell tale signs of bad front ball joints. I was wondering if anyone has been able to source a lower cost alternative to the bmw ball joints?

Re: Ball Joints

I think you are going to need stock OEM parts here, just a matter of finding a vendor.
02 31 44 7 694 428 BALL JOINT, BOTTOM1.01 1 $162.79

03 31 44 7 694 429 BALL JOINT, TOP0.82 1 $162.79
The labor will be the hard part. Takes 5 or 6 hours to do the job. Good winter project for a weekend. Read some of the threads here for how to information.
