Recommendation on ball joints

Recommended Posts

Well jacking my truck up and doing a check it would seem the ball joints on my passenger side are about shot. Not to mention how my steering is starting to pull to the left pretty bad. I figure with all the miles this thing has on the clock its about time to give the front end a good go through. So while I am going to give everything a good check I am wondering what brands people recommend on these trucks? I have used Moog in the past on passenger cars for idler arms, ball joints, tie-rods, etc. Heck I even used the el cheapo Duralast ball joints in a Mustang 5.0 and they seemed to hold up fine but then again that car didn't deal with near the amount of weight and abuse the truck does. Any suggestions?

I went with Moog. The cheapest price I found was at Amazon.com, but it was hard to determine which ones I needed from their website. Go to an autoparts website to find the right ones then write down the part # to find them on Amazon. Also, If you have a 2001 model with a Dana 60 front axel, don't even bother starting the job before you get the right balljoint puller. All 4 of my joints were a bi###, to get off, even with the right puller.
