Balljoints/Spindle lift

Im going to put a 3" spindle lift on my 2wd 06 ranger sport. It only has 58,000 miles on it. Am i going to have to replace my balljoints when i put my spindle on? If so are balljoints expensive?

i definately would do them at the same time, its only a matter of time before they start to go out anyhow. do them now to save yourself the tear down twice....i think i got bottom ones for around 15 bucks each and top ones with the new arms for 75 each

it would save on the alignments, break it down once and do both things.

Agreed... they aren't that expensive so you may as well do it when everything is apart and save on the alignments!
