Ball Joint Replacement Help

So I'm getting ready to replace my ball joints and I'm calling around pricing them. I give them all the required info and they're all telling me that these standard joints wont work with a 4.10 axle for what ever dumb reason. Is this true or just them being idiots? If so, where do I go (Don't dare say stealership) to get the "right" joints. Also what is the difference in them for my axle?

F350 Ex Cab, Dually, E40D, 167K, 4x4, Banks Turbo, 4'' SP, 4.10s, 30+ Running Lights


Looking for-
Set of Dually Alcolas
Blue or Grey Bucket Seats

XRF Chassis | Automotive and Heavy Duty Chassis Parts | Parts Overview These are much better then Moog or Monroe. I plan on replacing mine since I am tired of have to replace them every couple of years. I am on my third set with only 168,000 miles on my truck.

They will work as long as you tell them the GVW of the truck is over 5,000#.

There is no difference in the Dana 50/60's other than the gear ratio's. The axles housings, axle shafts, hubs, brakes, lockouts, steering knuckles, etc are the same no matter which gear ratio you have
