What about adjustable upper? And are those prices for 1 ball joint? Trying to figure out if I'm paying too much, ($250 for all 4 adjustable)

I can't see why you would need adjustable ball joints, unless your axle is bent.

Don't they help correct alignment? I am running 35s on stock control arms and a 3.5" suspension lift and 1" BL so I'm thinking they will help keep everything where it is suppose to be since I can't adjust my control arms. Maybe I'm wrong.

Not sure how much caster correction you will get from adjustable ball joints.
For the cost, you might be better off getting a set of adjustable control arms.

Unless you need ball joints anyways and trying to kill 2 birds with one stone.... I'd still find out how much adjustment they will give you for the $$. Spicer ball joints (non adjustable) are under $100

I need ball joints anyway and since these are new but at a cheaper price I figured I would get them. For the moment if I were to get adjustable arms and could only get one pair I should get uppers correct?

Would I be better off just getting adjustable uppers for now and get non adjustable ball joints in the near future? I that joints I have now aren't totally shot but they are on their last leg.
