Default anyone had this problem (ball joints)

So, needed new lower ball joints, so i pop em out and go to put the new one in (moog) and it slides right in with no force at all, i can spin it in there freely, and it doesnt go in far enough to put the snap ring in. wrong part right? so i go back to part source they confirm the part and give me a nascar brand i think and its exactly the same deal. So i drop the 120.00 for a bj at dodge and the bj they give me is actually 0.010 of an inch smaller than the moog. control arm looks oem. anyone experience this or have an opinion would like to hear. 2007 dodge ram 1500 4x4
