Ball joint questions

I have an 05 f250 psd 4x4, can anyone tell me what balljoint service tool they used to service theirs. I went to JW to get alignment done and they told me I needed a new hub assembly. I replaced the driver side hub assembly and my wife took it back, now they told her it needs adjustment sleeve and left upper balljoint. I know you can't replace one balljoint. Does anyone know if Moog balljoints are good?
Thanks any thoughts would be great.

Moog is very reputable as far as I know.

I would choose OEM over moog but I am a bit biased. The OEM joints are non-servicable with no grease fitting and if that's a big deal then choose aftermarket.

We use the OTC master ball joint kit at work. It definitely has enough pieces to quickly do super duty balljoints. Unfortunately at this time I can't rattle off exactly which adapters you need, there are several.

you can replace 1 ball joint but why ?

get serviceable joints

I like Dana / then Moog unless you want super high end units

I have DyanTrac pro steer ball joints. If you can afford them. You can't beat them.

Thanks Sinner, ZMANN and Ryan. I have am going to go to dealership in am and get some prices on parts. I have a question on the axel shaft seal, I hope this doesn't sound dumb but here goes. When I knock out the shaft seal will the seal still be on the shaft? If so do you hammer it off. When I install the new seal, does it go on the shaft first and then get seated into the knuckle. One more question, on the upper balljoint is there an adjustment sleeve. JW said they adjusted the tow in and that I needed an adjustment sleeve.

Update on balljoints and adjustment sleeve. I have decided to let the dealership do the work, I'm working out of town and kinda ran out of time. Going on vacation with family on Friday and towing 31ft TT from Pa to Sc. The bottom line is my family and I will be safe.
Thanks for all the input guys.
