Ball Joints

I'm looking for a good set of upper and lower ball joints for my truck. I'm wondering who can tell me what brands are better to go with and if stock ones or if there are Energy Suspension ones or what?

I found this on ebay, take a look and tell me if you think these would be any good or not. I want some really good ball joints but don't wanna spend an arm and leg for them either. Installation is not my worry, I have that covered, just the parts them selves. Thanks.

MOOG ball joints. Last a long time AND have a lifetime warranty. I don't know what all comes in the kit, but all you need is a few seals and the ball joints. They are a pain to press in by hand tools and a press (I don't even know if it can be done) but with an impact wrench it only takes a few hours.

Cool thanks for the tip, I'll check out the Moog ones too, very nice with a lifetime warranty I like that. I would definitely be using power tools so it wont take me all damn day lol.

Maybe it's just me, but I'm not seeing a complete kit on there, I see upper kit and lower kit.

Nevermind, I think I found the kit with seals on powerstrokeshop.com

99-04 Super Duty F250-F350 4x4 Complete Ball Joint Kit w/ seals

I found these for a little less, but not sure if they come with everything like the first kit above ^

The ones from powerstrokeshop are Moog also I've I remember right and believe me if the other ones don't come with everything don't bother even if it's cheaper. Get it all unless you don't use the auto hubs.

I do like to use the auto hubs so I think I'll just get the whole kit with everything from powerstrokeshop. Thanks everyone for input and advice. Much appreciated.
