    Yeah. The title threw me off too.
    Welcome to the forum.
    As far as what to charge, it’s according to what you’re wanting to do. Labor only but for a friend/family? Flat rate charges similar to a dealership/garage?

    I guess that’s fair. That’s quite a bit of work.

    I just did the valve cover on my 03 so I’m familiar with it. I’ve never done the ball joints but I’m sure it’s no different then any other truck I’ve done. He’s bought all the parts from Toyota already he just wants the work done.

    It won’t be too bad of a job. A little time consuming.
