I would say to buy the best parts for the job. You DO NOT want to go cheap on suspension parts. If you change 1 then change them all as a set. You don't want to replace just the 1 bad ball joint then have the other go out a short time later. Get a small sledge hammer and a pickle fork and soak in pb blaster the day before you are going to do the work. Look on the bright side, if they have been replaced once before then you don't have to worry about the factory rivets to drill and punch out.
