I have been hearing squeeky noises coming from the right side of car
and I took it to the mechanic. He said the lower ball bearing was bad.
When I push hard on the right side front fender i hear the squeeky
sound more. He said I should change both ball bearings. I drive about
80 miles a day.
My question are:
What does the ball bearings do?
How long more can I keep driving it before I fix it.
Is this a big job?
He wants $200 for the job? is that fair? its NYC.
whats the worst that can happen?
Is this a job I can do myself?

I do not know what the lower ball bearings are. Could you have meant
lower ball JOINTS?
US$200 to replace both lower ball joints sounds like a good deal to me
If the ball joints fail catastrophically, you could lose control of
Various bushings can also make squeaky noises, such as upper control
Hope some of this helps.
