Ball Joints all wrong

I have a 96 f250 bought used. I took my truck apart the other day to replace the balljoints and the parts I got from advanced were wrong so I went back and had different ones ordered the still didn't work they slide right in and twist around and they should have to be pressed. so I went to napa every ball joint they brought out had the same problem. Supposedly for my year truck within a couple months that mine was made it was made with a heavier ifs which used different ball joints so napa ordered them and the same problem does anybody have a clue what balljoints fit this truck I have no idea what to do.

All TTB D50 ball joints for a OBS are the same..you have to press in them.

The problem is that they are too small and don't need to be pressed the slide right in and can be twisted

I did mine a few months ago and I got them from Advanced with no issues. They were Moog, unfortunately I don't have the part number right now but I can look when I get home.

04 F350 With all the mods.
