Exclamation 08 F250 DIY Ball joints?

So I think my front passenger ball joints are going out in my stroker, the passenger front tire is wearing really bad and the truck pulls to the right. I've been told that sounds like the ball joints are going or my alignment is just off. Any body ever done their own ball joints? If so, how much of a pain is it, any specialty tools needed or for that matter, what tools needed? I do have have access to a lift, and a surplus of tools, but im just wanting to make sure that's the case on the truck before I go gun-ho and start taking things apart that don't necessarily need to be touched. Thanks!

While the truck in the video isn't an '08, the process will be virtually identical. The ball joint process hasn't changed over the different years.
