I havent had a problems with myne yet at 30,000, but know people that have. I just got done reparing a dana 44 that I just got in the jeep today. I had to replace the ball joints they are on backorder for 3 to 4 week here is the part # 6800 4085 AA they run about $100.00 for upper and lower from a dealer and $50.00 from quadratec for the same part#.:beer:

I believe quadratec's Ball Joints are made by Crown, just like the Tie Rod I ordered from them a few months ago. The Rubber on the Tie Rod end already starts cracking. I won't get anymore Crown Parts...

All this talk about balljoints got me concerned so I decided to call my local parts guy and get a set to have just in case.

Your part number is correct (left and right is same part #) and I had no problem getting them. Dealer did not show any backorders and is sending me two sets tomorrow.

Some dealers have um and some dont they are showing a backorder if the dealer has to order them. I had to drive about an hour to a dealer in victorville to get myne:beer:
