Balljoints and Bearings being replaced...what else?

The balljoints and front bearings on my 95 F350 7.3 are all shot. Since I live in an apartment complex and can't be doing something quite that involved with my limited assortment of power tools and NO access to air tools, I'm having to bite the bullet and get that work done at a local shop. I am getting the Moog greaseable balljoint put in. Is there anything else that's a total pain that I should get done at the same time? I may as well have them replace the needle bearings since the axle shaft will be out. What about the u-joints? Is that something that's a pain to do on my own later once they start to go? I wouldn't mind paying for all the parts on this but the more I add to the labor time, the more expensive it's going to be. Anything else I should look into? Thanks.

I would say do your wheel joints while you're at it. definitely. some call them u joints. they are cheap and right there when doing your ball joints.

Got the front end done this week. Replaced ball joints, wheel bearings + seals, needle bearings and u-joints. Also found that my front diff breather was broken off and the front diff was full of water. That was flushed and the breather replaced and all looks good. She sure drives a lot better and now I don't feel like the front end is going to catch fire.
