Hi buddy I found these on eBay and it seems a great price for the pair so according to the labour pricing you have their you would probably have them fitted for under £100! Not too bad, only thing is I would check and make sure they proper Lexus/Toyota ones......

Dont skimp on the ball joints dude, I had one pop on me before and trust me it does some damage. Order them from lexus and fit em yourself. Really isnt a hard job to do either. Ive done both sides on mine and didnt take that long at all really
