When i was doing my ball joint, my CV split and tore the boot. We managed to get the CV back together just fine (it was PACKED with grease, nothing fell out thank god) but the boot still needed to be fixed, and I was done doing it. It was already friday of my spring break.
About 1.5-2 hours of work if that, (including a tie rod end that Lakeville SSEi fubar'd) And they had a new boot over it and she was ready.
Definetly take it in. You'll need some special tools for the Hub, and you need a lot of room and time for it. Not to mention packing CV joints is messy..
