Ball Joints

My 02 f250 7.3 has original ball joints and I know that it need to be replace soon. But I want to see some feedback on brand name ball joints. What brand would be good for super duty? I don't tow that much. It just my daily driving truck. I want something that will last me a long time. Anybody use Napa ball joints? I work in automotive shop and I can buy ball joints for list price not cost which I will save half of the price on parts. I just want to see feedback or any advice. Feel free share. Thanks!

If you want the best. Go with DynaTrac Prosteer ball joints. Not cheap though.

The dyna trac have been taken apart with 100,000+ miles and had no measurable wear. So it's like you just put them in. OEM will not do that.

The Dyna trac does. Do what you want. But you will not find a better ball joint than what I said.
