I was pricing ball joints at JC Whitney and the Moog ones they have show two different ball joints. Seems like 91-93(and a few mos) are different from 93-94? The parts house never says that there are different ones. Is this something to be concerned about if I buy ball joints localy?

The 2WD ball joints are different from the 4WD ball joints.

Also, for some reason, some parts stores list a Dana 28 4WD application, even though almost all Explorers have a Dana 35 front axle.

Just be sure you're getting them for a 1993 4WD Explorer w/Dana 35 and they should be the right ones.


Also, if you just need lower ball joints (usually the ones that go bad), I have some brand new ones for sale: http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?p=2221334#post2221334

Thanks for the heads up on rockauto. That is really cheap, even for the moog stuff. I think maybe I'll order up enough parts to do one whole side from them sometime. For now I'm just replacing the one bad ball joint.
