What's the price difference on the Spicer and Synergy ball joints? $40 or so per side?

I really want the Synergys , but with new wheel bearings and chromoly front shafts its tough to justify the added expense . I am heading home tomorrow and I will get it figured out then . So many parts and so little money

Parts budgeting is teh debil !

But with a long drive ahead , and several weeks of wheeling I need to get the front end in order . And I want to add a power steering cooler into the mix before I head west . The dollar signs are spinning faster than a monkey can fling poo

A pre-killed monkey can't do that, you know.

That would be nice, but then the money would get spent on other sh$t in life and we would be just as broke.. It you have it, you will spend it or some saying like that.
