Default Ball joints

ok so my lower ball joint on the driver side is damn near gone so i just got my new ball joint press in the mail over the weekend and soon to go get the ball joint itself to be fixed now here's my question should i replace just the one or replace the upper also my theory is one is out another is getting ready to go out they all have the same miles on them and the same amount of stress on them especially if there on the same side. all the experts i've asked said you need to changed them both the upper and the lower on that side well MR.GOODWRENCH himself (the father in law who claims he know absolutely everything on a vehicle) says all you need to do is take that on out and back in its that simple. well now im asking the real experts to this question, now me and in my experience in ball joints i might just change them both.
