nobody to my knowledge makes a high angle heavy duty joint for our trucks...i know there's companys that make them for fullsizes though.

get moogs or spicers.....those are known to outlast and out perform stock joints.

A set of uppers and lowers are on my spring "to-do" list. No more replacing the ENTIRE upper control arm for ridiculous amounts of $$$ and only having the ball joints last a year or two.

I'm getting the replaceable upper ball joints with grease fittings and lowers with grease fittings. These Ford special replacements are GARBAGE!!

MOOG it is!!!
