Front end gone bad on a 2006....

Hey guys, looking for some help and advice here. I have a 2006 F250 6.0L, several weeks ago my truck started pulling hard left or right which ever way I turned. The only way to get the truck driving straight is to give it a hard wobble left-right-left-right until it loosens up and drives straight, otherwise I have to fight it to stay on the road.

Firestone told me this is what was wrong,

-Both lower ball joints had a lot of play and badly needed replacing
- Front Left U-joint had gone bad
-Right outer Tie Rod has gone bad as well

does anyone have any advice or preference on aftermarket brands for these parts. I would like to have grease fittings from this point forward.

any help is greatly appreciated!

On my chevy I used moog and was very happy but I haven't used their components on a straight axle truck. They do have a grease fitting though and also a lifetime warranty.

I would avoid moog ball joints. Raybestos professional grade are great and made by spicer. I would def replace all ball joints and both u joints while it was apart. It would be foolish not to imo.
