Which Ball Joints?

Im gonna order a set of ball joints but dont know which to buy? Ive looked on ebay and there are alot of them for under 100 bucks shipped and more under 50 bucks shipped. Would these be ok or is there some brand I should get? Thanks in advance for any help.

I own a suspension/alignment shop and I have to agree, moog is the best way to go, especially with the added strain of the lift/big tires/offset rims.

I have the greasable moog joints and i would do them again if i had to. Not a thing you want to cut corners on.

Dynatrac would be the best way to go, IMO.....but they aren't cheap.
Dynatrac ProSteer Ball Joints


For a "normal" ball joint, Moog.

OK, so I am kind of starting from scratch here, my left front is in need of replacing. Are the moog's better than stock ford? Are the stock ford bad? The reason I ask is a buddy of mine is a ford mechanic and can get me a deal on factory stuff...

Factory Ford is non-servicable(no grease fitting) whereas the Moog's have a grease fitting so can be lubricated.
