Up grade on ball joints!

Any brand recommended for heavy duty ball joints, factory replacements keep going out.

I swapped my front axle with a custom assembly that had Dana Spiccer in it before I ever needed to replace my factory ones, I had that set up for 8 years without any problems at all. I've read good things about both Synergy & Dynatrac too.

Good luck!

I went with the Dynatrac ProSteers. They are a bit pricey but worth every penny. I believe they are running a $100 rebate currently and you might be able to tie that into a supporting vendor discount as well.

you cant really go wrong with any aftermarket balljoint. as long as you stay away from OEM garbage they will last you a LONG time.

I like my alloyUSA balljoints, I am not really partial to any brand.

N00b question: How do you know when your OEM balljoints are failing? What's the symptom?
