Not a snow balls chance in hell. There are a TON of cheap Chinese knockoff parts being made. For a part like this that is difficult to replace and the cost difference between imiatation and a quality part isnt that much, I wouldnt recommend trying to save a few bucks. I always recommend MOOG parts....

I agree. I have found a full set of MOOG ball joints for $200 shipped but my problem is that I need brakes and rotors all the way around and the ball joints started squeaking last week. I don't have the money to do both right now unless I go with these. I figured I could get these in and then do MOOG at a later date when I have the extra cash. I'll be doing the work myself, so I would just be out the time for repair.

Gotcha. If your doin the work yourself and have the time, then it wouldnt be so bad. I just didnt want you to go out and buy these, pay for them to get replaced, and be back in the same boat in year or so.

Thanks. Yeah, I'm not big on using inferior parts but money talks at this point. I will definately be replacing them again in the future with MOOG. I actually looked at the new billet steel ball joints from DynaTrac but too expensive. I should have been more prepared for them to need replaced but the ones that are in it only have 40k on them and my truck is pretty much used for driving the family around. Tows occassionally but never off road.

i wouldnt buy cheap ones either, what goes into replacing these? on of my lower has become worn out, i can get a little play out of it with a crowbar when the tire is off the ground, I think i need to replace it sooner then later, does it take heat? a press? or just a sludge to know them out and new ones in?

If you have to replace 1, you should just go ahead and do both on one side or all 4. It's a pretty big job. Here is a good place to see a write-up. Ford Super Duty Ball Joint Replacement Procedure | Superdutypsd.com

Well, I ordered them. We'll see if it was a bad idea or not in a few days.
