i havent replaced a ball joint on my 60, so im not sure about that one, but the hub is basically the same. socket sizes are the same, but the hubs are held on by 4 bolts instead of the 3 that are listed for the 1500 in that article.

really i cant believe you havent replaced yours yet. i have now replaced the ball joints (uppers and lowers) and all the steering twice but this time i bought moog parts and lifetime napa parts and will never pay the install prices and replacement parts again they are bull sh*t.

I have not done mine yet either. I did the left hub at 125,000 or so. Going on 130,000 now, iv had the truck since new. What should i look for in a bad ball joint? Just wondering since im doing my lift right now and the truck is on jack stands with the axel disconected. Thanks.

The factory ball joints/wheel bearings are way better than aftermarket and tend to last way longer too. With that many miles though I'd go ahead and replace them if you have everything apart anyways.
