Ball Joints

what ball joints should i use when i replace my worn out stock ball joints?

2005 6.0 ccsb 2" leveling kit, 35" duratracks, blue spring, 4" turbo back, bullet proofed, sct live wire w/ KEM tuning, 58V FICM with KEM tuning, DIY Coolant filter, Batmowheel... more to come

Wish list- regulated return, injectors,tubo this list could go on and on.

Heard rumors of Moog's quality slipping of late. However, that's all I've ever run in my truck, and will continue to do so until I find a reason to switch.
x2 on Moog.

Those would be Spicer then. Spicer-Dana corporation manufactures Napa's Premium steering components. Still a quality product no doubt
Most of the issues i've heard with Moog of late are from the Dodge crowd. Specifically the 1st and 2nd gen Cummins that are prone to death-wobble, so the more than likely have bigger issues than ball-joints.

Send a message via Skype™ to OnTheBio
Does xrf have lifetime warranty as well?

I read too many good things about those. I'll be using them come replacement time.
