I'll try to make a long story short here. I'm doing a front solid axle swap on a Nissan with the D44 out of a '97 Dodge Ram 1500. I went to order ball joints from Rockauto.com and accidently ordered joints for a 2 wheel drive (front IFS). Obviously the front IFS ball joints are not compatible with the 4wd front axle knuckles. It took more than 30 days (barely) after I placed my order at Rockauto before I figured out what I had done. As such, I can't return these to Rockauto. I had to order a whole new set of the correct ball joints, so now I have these 2WD joints just laying around.

So... my idiot move can be someone else's gain. These are brand new in box Raybestos "Professional Grade" (not cheap service grade) upper and lower balljoints. The set of 4 cost me more than $215, and that was without shipping.



As stated in the title, these fit 94-99 Ram 1500 front knuckles. Raybestos part numbers:

505-1198 (2)
500-1081 (2)

I just pulled one joint out of the box for the photo, but they all come with the cotter pins, nuts, zerks and grease boots.

These will ship out of Eugene, Oregon via USPS Priority Mail. I'm asking only $95 for the entire set of 4, with shipping included. This works out to over 60% in savings over Rockauto's current price + shipping. Will take first post or PM.

*NOTE: I'm a reputable seller on other Nissan forums under the same user name. I can send any potential buyer links via PM as proof if someone has concerns.*

Thanks for reading.

Bump for a price drop to $85 with shipping included. Also, one thing I should have added to my first post... I bought these because I had read that Raybestos' holding company recently purchased Spicer, so these are supposed to be the new box label for Spicer premium ball joints.

Bump for another price drop to $75, shipping included. These are close to getting garbage canned, just because I don't know any other 2wd Ram 1500 owners...
