Hey guys, all my ball joints are shot, top and bottom left and right. I got quoted 850 for a year warranty with genuine ford parts. What do you guys think?

installed? that's what I was quoted with alignment for my 96, but they weren't ford parts, and may be something completely different from yours to mine.

Moog chassis parts are prolly the way I would go to. Had a lot of luck with them.

I had another question. I used to have the icon 4.5 hanger/shackle kit with that comes with the track bar bracket and the drop pitman arm. When I got my 33" nitto's I went to a ICON 2" mini spring pack, the shop that installed the 2" spring pack left the track bar bracket and pitman arm that came with the 4.5" hanger shackle installed on the truck. Was this the right way to go or should the stock bracket and pitman arm be put back on? Thank you.

I'd say you are fine with the bracket and arm as long as drive-ability issues do not exist. Check for suspension travel to ensure you have good clearance.

if your front axle is still centered then your fine if its proud to the passenger side you may think about removing the track bar drop bracket
