    i love my powerperformance joints, but ive heard ordering directly through them is hit and miss. I know most places that sell air ride sell them too, and should have them in stock

    I'd suggest power performance super travel ball joints since you are bagged.
    Item #: K5208ST

    lays frame on 28.75" OD tire with completely stock upper control arms.

    true, it's he is laying now throw and he puts them on it will limit the travel at full lift, but if they are binding now when layed out that is a good way to go. they angled the joint 4degs i believe.

    Control arm bushing was bad. Replaced it along with the upper ball joint since I had to visit the machine shop anyway. Just went with the moog ball joint as they were locally available.

    Thanks again.

    I have power performance ball joints on mine, they're ok. The boot came apart less than a year after install and apparently boots aren't part of their "unconditional" lifetime warranty. So I'm just waiting for them to go out and throw a set of Moogs on there.

    I compared the "house brand" at the parts house to the Moog and they looked like toys. :nono:

    I am happy with the Moogs. I did however upgrade the bolts to grade 8.
