Non-Ford Ball joints

I can get a complete set of uppers and lowers (OEBrand) for less then 1/4 the price of the Ford ones. Are the Ford Ball joints worth the extra $$$?

Thanks for the quick response Bill.

Just checked and MOOG Ball joints are basicly the same price as the Ford ones. The guy at the parts store says that they are better then stock, but then again he's trying to sell me the part. He also mentioned that the MOOG parts are guanteed for life. I can't see how they would honor that. Not sure what to think on this one. Any other opinions?

Is there a link somewhere that someone could direct me to with instructions on how to do the job and what tools are needed?

They aren't guaranteed for life to not wear out, but not to break

if you have a 4x4 this is one of the few jobs that I won't even try to tackle. I had a set of MOOG's in for a year after the fords lasted 3 years. I thought they were messing with me when they told me that the MOOG's were bad. I'm now trying McQuay-Norris Extreme ball joints hope they last. The warenty will cover the parts only, the labor to get them changed is about $250 a side. But i have found the online a step by step proccess on how to change them so it is out there.
