early 99 ball joints

I searched but didn't find a definite answer. My truck is a 12/98, Are there different parts for early99s to later 99s? the ball joints themselves, o-rings and seals?

thanks

did mine awhile back and i dont recall them asking on the ball joints, but the wheel hubs are different. the late 99 will work but had to use late 99 rotors. i belive there is no difference on the ball joints.

How much did the parts end up costing? I'm prob gonna have to do ball joints, tie rods, etc here soon and thats a bullet im scared to bite. I'll prob replace the steering rack with an aftermarket one when I pull everything off, try to get rid of some of the looseness in the steering.

Ball joints were 160 off amazon.com
Dust seals were 30 off amazon.com
Knuckle seals and yellow orings were 140 from ford
And roughly 9 hrs of my time going slow and remaining calm, there is a lot of good write ups on how to do them too

I bought the stuff from somewhere that I found on here. I can't remember worth the life of me at the moment, but all parts to do the job came to $350, plus another $350 to have them installed.

I am having my ball joints done this week and am curious about the early 99 hubs... My hubs are stuck in the locked position and the local shop reccomends I replace the hubs with "Manual Hubs". Do I need to be worried about the early 99 hubs being different in this case?
