Anyone have a good source for aftermarket performance upper and lower ball joints for G4 2011 Ram 1500 sport 2wd? Googling and all I see is 4x4 ball joints.

I bought some Duralast lower ball joints for $21.99 each. They are really nice and even have zerk grease fittings to keep the grease topped off. Going to instal them when I do my lift very soon.

Have you had any signs of them wearing out?

If so, what are they?

Installed the Duralast ones a few days ago. They are very nice units and reasonably priced.

@ HEMI-PWRD

No signs of them wearing, but I did damage the rubber gromment when I installed the drop spindles. I also want some Zerk's so I can service them properly. So since I was tearing down to get to the ball joints may as well replace them with some upgraded units if they are available. Looks like Duralast is my only option thus far.
