2002 F350 4x4, Ball Joints

Looking for some advise here. our truck just turned 100,000 miles and we had it in or service today. The ford dealer is saying that all the ball joints are bad again. They were replaced at 45,000 miles by Ford. The truck is a highway flyer and is used to tow our two horses. By no means is this abuse. Anyone have any suggestions or is this one of those common things>

I would fight that and tell them exactly what you just typed. You shouldnt have had to replace them at 45k in the first place... I have 176k and im changing them all out finally because i have one bad balljoint on the upper pass side so im just going to change all four and both hubs because I found some new ones for a good deal...
