no, a ball joint can be pefectly fine but the boot can be ripped, mine are torn up cause of the sprindle. you can just replace the boot on them with a new one and re-lube

stick a pry bar under the tire and lift up on it, if you can here popping and feel slack then you are probally due for new balljoints.

Ill do it when they get alot worse, jacking up the truck, getting off the wheel, and unbolting the spindle takes a tad longer than an oil change
