If i remember correctly, Upper & Lower Ball Joints on my 96 ran about $600 +/-, but we done at different times. Add the water pump and others and you're likely around $1,000...

Whatever you do, don't go to dobbs, they will scew you. I did mine myself and they ran around 250-300 for parts. I have heard that sears is pretty cheap on labor for that kinda stuff.

The upper BJs are a snap (on my 96 though, not sure about your 94). Save the $200 labor and do the uppers yourself. I couldn't press the new balljoints into the lower control arms and had to have the lowers done ($150 ea). The uppers are about the same cost to have done - less labor, more part price. Don't forget the alignment.
