Default Quick Alignment question

I replaced my ball joints this past weekend and need one...

How much will it cost me typically? I haven't had one done on a car in a long time. Thanks.

i just had a front alingment done at the Chevy Dealership here in town and it cost me 36, but i'm sure you can find it cheaper, there are places that will do it for 25 ( but i dont know if i trust some of them or not)

Wow that'* cheaper than I thought. I'll probably get the four wheel to be safe, unless I can't do the tie rod ends this weekend, then I'll only get the front.

If you're planning on doing the tie rod ends the hold off on the alignment until you do 'em, you'll just need it again.

Yeah, that'* why I'd only do the front to save $. I don't know when I'll be able to do the tie rod ends, or if they are even needed, and I don't want to drive too long without an alignment done. I know I'll need it again, but there are other things I have to fix first unfortunately :(
