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.

I've ordered ball joints for an OBS F250 without issue. Are they ordering them for a 97 F250 light duty?

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.
