Water Pump and Ball Joints, which first?
I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 4.7L I purchased about 5 months ago. I took it to a jeep dealer to be inspected and was told that I need to replace my power steering pump, they said "power steering pump leaking from res. and shaft seal" and they quoted me $730. They also told me that I need to replace the upper and lower ball joints left and right side front "upper and lower ball joints have excessive play" and quoted me $890 for that, although I have not noticed any signs of this while driving.
I cannot get both fixed at same time due to $ issues, so my question is which do I get fixed first, I am assuming the ball joints since I'm not noticing any power steering leakage? Also, are these prices I was quoted reasonable and if not what should I expect to pay? TIA!
