I suggest you take a look @ xrf balljoints.
I've looked into the XRF parts a few times, and the one thing I'm not crazy about is that they do not sell direct to customers, you must go through a distributor.
This isn't the end of the world for a decent product, however. I contacted them to find a local distributor and Dawn (from XRF) referred me to Brad Benson at DK Diesel Performance & Offroad, as there are no local distributors here.
Brad's Phone number is : 360-815-2098 Ext# 2
Disclaimer: this is not a plug for either XRF or DK Diesel. I have yet to use any XRF parts and have never dealt with DK Diesel. I am simply restating the information given to me by XRF for anyone here without a local distributor that is interested in their parts.
Additional info: Dawn just got back to me again, and XRF *will* sell directly to customers if you call them, but they do not offer free shipping (might still be cheaper than markup from a distributor?).
