i've read the hub/axle joint replacement in the tech section but i dont have the correct tools to do the job, if i take my truck to a machanic will it be expensive? i've heard from other people that replacing the wheel joint is a pain.

the tools you need can be purchased at sears for just under 50 bucks depending on what size drive you get and any other little thing you "need" to have while you are in there just FYI

$50 isn't going to get him a torque wrench that will do 175 ft/lbs.

Though it does give him a reason to go out and add some tools to his collection, or at least start one.
