Which ball joints do I get?

I need to replace the lower ball joints on my 04 ranger. What brand ball joints do I get? I want some that are decently priced. I dont need anything super highend. What are you guys running?

Well OEM is out of the question. The dealer wants $87.14 each for them.

Not meaning to hijack your thread but was looking at replacing mine with Moog's soon and was wondering what are the difference between OEM control arms and Moog control arms ? Moog ball joints for OEM are 28.79 on Rock Auto.

Moog control arms you can press out the ball joint if you have to replace them. OEM you cannot.
