Default Ball Joints

So I have around 95000 miles on my truck and the ball joints are popping pretty bad so I have called around and the guy at the parts place says moog doesn't make them for the 2009 so I need to call the dealership. Which I do and the guy tells me I have to buy the whole arm for upper and lower and the cost is 160 or so for the top and 350 or so for the bottom. Is that the only way because it seems to me that they should press out like any other vehicle.

oh and hey to everyone..

I took a quick look on the RockAuto.com website, and it looks like they have ball joints for the 09.

Hey ive done a few lower control arms due to the lower ball joints failing. And yes mopar does not do them seperate. 2wd nor 4wd joints are only complete with the arms.
You might be able to get an aftermarket kit, but if it dont work make sure you have a good welder!!

found out it wasn't the ball joints popping. it was a brace underneath 2 bolts came loose and when i turned it moved and popped. sounded the same as ball joints though.
