Need parts list for ball joint job

I'm planning on doing my ball joints, and basically a complete front-end job in a couple weeks. I've got just a bit of play in my steering wheel, and a slight shimmy in the wheel. Just figured that I would be time and money ahead to go and do every part that requires an alignment following replacement.

I've searched for a couple nights on here about the ball joint replacement. All I've turned up mostly is for the leaf spring front ends. I would appreciate if you guys could post a list of parts that will be needed for my 05, including all seals, etc. I plan to replace all U-joints too, along with tie-rod ends. If the part is dealer-only, or the part is best bought at the dealership, please state that. I want to get everything bought up and have ready when I start the job. Hopefully I can do it over the Memorial Day weekend. I have the tools and skill, just got get the will and desire.

Alright, did some checking tonight on different parts house websites. Advanced Auto has Moog ball joints listed, but 2 seperate ones. The first style is $36/ea. The next, more expensive ones are listed "problem solver" for $75/ea. Anyone know the difference between them? Has to be something different for the price. I wanted to check here, because most of the workers there don't know anything about what they are selling.

I stopped by Advance this morning and found out the difference. It takes the more expensive ones. LOL Apparently, their website is very vague about which ball joints go on which truck. He said the cheaper ones are for 2x4 and the pricey ones are for 4x4. Go figure.
