need new UCA's

well my upper control arms are in need of replacement (ball joints wore, gotta replace the whole unit)

now, the question is do i stick with ball joints, or do i go with a uniball setup.
truck is my daily driver. 140 miles a day commute.

i also use it for offroading. in the bush for firewood, playing in the sand, rocks, etc. as well as high speed gravel/dirt roads.

what are the pros and cons for each setup? (ball joint vs uniball)

thanks in advance

Go with balljoints, uniballs will probably wear out quicker than the moog replacment bj's. uniballs are stronger/safer but on a stock rig entirely a waste of money
