Default Ball Joints

Which brand ball joints do you like for Dana 44 & 60 axles?
Moog Problem Solver, Raybestos Professional Grade, McQuay-Norris, Napa Chassis Parts, Spicer, etc.

I like the ones that are greaseable after being installed.
I've had good service from Moog (their upper ball joint has the grease fitting angled at the bottom/side).

But back to the original question, I run the Moog joints as well

I used to use moog but have been using the new napa chassis and have had really good luck. Super duty ball joints are about a joke but the napa chassis seem to last about the longest.

It's very important to set the right preload on them
