powerstrokeshop.com USED to have a full kit that had everything you need including 4 moog ball joints for $291 bucks. I went on their site last night and NOTHING. I was not happy. Yes there are a few o rings on the hubs and the seals on the axle shafts. I don't know why they quit carrying that kit, but no one else that i can find has anything similar without buying it all separate.

Replacement O-rings for Ford Diesel Engines

I bought all my stuff from Ford when I did mine last year. But here is Guzzles site. I ordered some o-rings from him a while back, very fast and good priced.

So 2 sets of hub ring clip and O-rings, plus the axle seals is what I'm gonna need to get correct?

Only use Moog joints or you will be doing them again. Here is a good write up on it.
Ford Super Duty Ball Joint Replacement Procedure | Superdutypsd.com

I found a shop near me who does them for $150 a side you buy the joints. Not worth doing for $300, at least not for me.

They still have the kit. I ordered mine this morning for $320.

Moog brand is superior to the OEM Ford balljoints due to the fact that they come with a grease zerk. This is enables you to grease them and prolong the life versus the OEM ones which are a sealed unit and do not allow you to grease them.
