Are they the originals? How many miles on them?

Since you gotta replace them, go with greasable joints and keep up on the maintenance of greasing them at every oil change.

they are the orignals. the truck just hit 92000 miles. truck is at stock height and has never plowed before. some ppl were saying they go at like 75k miles but i think im going to replace with moog ball joinits (atleast i think thats the name) but they are greaseable and about $70 dollars a piece.
