Talking Ball Joint Replacement - What Kind and How Hard?

I'm being told I need uppers and lowers. Is there a certain brand I should be shopping for? The prices seem to range from $33 for a FULL set on Ebay, to $130 each through local auto parts stores. The ones that are adjustable or offset seem to be about double the price of the regular ones. I'm not sure if I need those or not. I have a 2.5" leveling kit.

Also, is it a complicated task to change these? I've ripped apart suspensions before on cars and toyotas, but never on a full size dodge. Any special tools required?

Any help is appreciated.
