2008 CLS 550 front end

Seems my car has more problems lately. Start thinking about changing cars but this one is getting near paid off!
When I bought it a couple of years back I was told that some of the ball joints were bad. Now I hear a cracking or popping noise up front right side when driving over bumps. Sounds to me like bad ball joints. I took it to a local shop and they advised me to take it to an imports specialty shop and did not tell me if anything was bad. The one place I took it to wanted $50 to look at it, I did not trust that one very much so I left.
Question, is replacing tie rod ends something I can do like most any other car then have someone align the front end?
Otherwise any idea how much it costs to replace the ball joints typically?
