Ball joints

How do I go about figuring out what kind of ball joints I need? I see how they have the centered ones and they have off set ones?

You don't need offset unless your housing is bent. New spicer balljoints are about $40. Per side on Amazon.

Take your Jeep to an alignment shop unless it is obvious enough to tell by looking at the housing or looking down the tubes. Did you do something to suspect you bent the housing? You'd have to jump the Jeep or hit something pretty hard.

Yeah, just get the regular ball joints. Get Spicer though, they seem to be the best for OE type replacement.
