bad lower ball joint

Found out yesterday that my front right lower ball joint is bad
Checked at the parts store and they have two different kinds. An adjustable one which is $80+ and a non adjustable one which is $30+. My question is why go with the adjustable? What are the pros and cons of it? If the side that is good is not adjustable, which I am not sure of but it is factory, will it hurt to have one side adjustable and the other not?

I agree non-adj is fine. Split the difference, get a non-adj Moog for $50 or so.

Cool, thanks for the advice. I will get started on that this weekend, hopefully.
