Specific Balljoint Info

Ok a while back i asked for some info as to where I can get the MOOG upper control arms and the lower balljoints needed to do my truck. I tried to search for it, but the search function is spazzing on me. What I need here is the exact part numbers I need for both drivers and passengers side control arms and lower balljoints. I also need the number to where I can order these from. I need to get them ASAP before my truck just falls apart on me. Oh and how hard is this job. I'm pretty confident in my abilities as to the fact I did my lift myself and I do most of my work on my truck, so what do I need to know about this before I jump right in?

Yeah they were 119 each, and 31 for the lowers. Now from the parts I got since my boxes had already been opened (they said to doble check it was the right part) when I looked on rockauto.com they said that the passenger side contained 2 parts (on the spec. sheet), however mine only contains the smaller part and not a second. It did come with new adjuster bolts and such, but tell me Tommy is there anything missing? The drivers side contains just the larger full upper controlarm and balljoint which looks to be correct, but the passenger is only the tiny piece that is removable without taking off the other part of the control are like you would have too on the drivers side. If this isn't making sense lemme know and ill take pics of both the truck and the parts, but I'm pretty sure you know what I mean.

My Moogs only came with the small part for the pass side. Odds are they list two parts b/c there actually is two parts, the ball joint itself and the arm. Keep in mind that the upper balljoints themselves are now replaceable. No more arms to purchase in the future, just the balljoint itself from now on.

Well see that's what I thought at first, but for the driver's side it's only listed as one part. Bleh either way I'm not sweating it, from what you and Tommy told me, I've got the right piece/part. Now I just have to wait until Friday when I can afford the insane 150 bucks to rent a balljoint press. I think my truck will hold out until then. I honestly can't wait for this to be done. My truck hasn't seen the mud in months and its dieing for some action.
