3 big repairs soon on '94 wagon

I am going to have three repairs done soon.

1. The fan bearing

2.I think my driver's side ball joint is on its way out. ~$800

3. I hear a hole in my exhaust or muffler.

The question is what can I expect from the muffler as far as cost? The hole sounds like it is aft of the center muffler. Are they sectional or is it a tremendously expensive single unit from the cat to the end?

The older models have 3 sections. Yours is probably similar:

I got a good price on my exhaust from an Indie. Middle and back. Can't recall the cost, but it was almost 1/3 the dealer price. It is OEM, not OE stuff. Works and runs fine almost two years now. One thing to look out for: MB OE has a blackened finish to it. My OEM stuff did not. On my car, itís not an issue as the car is smoked silver. But it would stand out on a darker car.

There is a place here in Redmond WA, where I get my tires and wheels done, that has a twin pipe TE exhaust, Brabus I think. Customer ordered and then didnít want it so heís stuck with it. I donít know price. He offered it to me about 6 months too late. I did not buy from him, but twin pipes certainly were tempting. The place is Car Nutz.
