Ball Joint Replacement

Thought I'd throw a quick question out here.. My 2002 PSD has been hard on ball joints and I 'am looking to get away from the factory stuff and want to go to something heavier.. Any recommendations? I was thinking DANA or MOOG and definitely wanted something serviceable with grease fittings..

MOOG is #1

Having and using the grease fittings is a must any time the truck has been in the dust, water or mud.
My old Ford truck had the king pins and serviced once a month or when operated as above, had no issues, had close to 300,000 miles when a 18 wheel gravel truck pished the front to the rear and right, was looking forward for to 400,000.

I appreciate the feedback... I definetely plan to use grease fittings.. Moog being number one probably is why they twice as much.. You want to play you have to pay..
