If you're the owner of a Dodge Cummins and haven't changed your ball joints, you either don't have any miles on the truck, or you're the luckiest Dodge owner on the face of the Earth. At DPP, we're all Dodge owners and are all VERY well aware of the front end issues with these trucks, but we've also found the permanent fixes. One of the key ingredients to the equation are upgrading the ball joints, and Dynatrac has just that. Even the first impression when seeing the girth of these is impressive. But then after years of service and NOT having to replace worn out ball joints, that's what is really impressive. Whether your truck is a pavement pounder, or used for hard core off-road use, these ball joints WILL stand the test of time.
Now available in a knurled design! For those that aren't aware of what a knurled ball joint is, many of the aftermarket ball joint suppliers use "knurls" on the body of the ball joint to ensure they fit tight into the knuckle, as opposed to having exacting tolerances, such as Dynatrac. Unfortunately, if you've ever installed a set of knurled joints, you'll forever have to run knurled joints, hence why Dynatrac offers these. You DO NOT want to install the Dynatrac knurled ball joints if you don't need to, thus, if you're not currently running knurled ball joints, we highly recommend you purchase the STANDARD DYNATRAC'S.

how do I know if I need knurled or standard ball joints ??
The easiest way to tell if you need knurled ball joints is to remove one and see if the area where the ball joint presses into the knuckle is splined. If it is splined that would mean you would need knurled joints.
Do these work for the 2 wheel drive axle as well? '06 dodge 2500?
These will only fit 2003-2012 Ram 2500/3500 4WD applicaitons
What is the process for rebuilding the ball joints??
Here is a link to Dynatrac's website. On there you can download the instructions and get a better idea of what is involved. https://www.dynatrac.com/rebuild-kit-for-heavy-duty-balljoints-for-most-dana-60-axles-and-dynatrac-pro-60-knuckles.html Here is a link going over how the balljoint works. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVfeapriubg
So. I work in a well known tire shop. I can't say how many times I've replaced balljoints on dodge trucks. Some smooth barrel joints some had knurled bodies. So. On my personal truck a 2011 ram 2500. I have knurled balljoints. My question to you is do you sell or know of anyone that sellshe knurled OFF SET balljoints. Reason I ask is when I went to allign the truck my camber is horrid negative and actually outside factory spec on one side. But since I can't use a smooth body balljoint I have to use knurled body joints. But.. I need offset balljoints. PLEASE HELP!?
For knurled body joints or performance replacement joints we do not have anything that will be off-set. Reason being is their is no need to build a offset / adjustable ball joint. If the truck has a poor camber issue, it most likely has a bent axle housing. As these are solid axle trucks and camber is not adjustable.
Do the dynatrac ball joints come with grease fittings??
Yes, they will have a traditional grease zerk up top, and a needle style zerk on the lower.
How can i tell if i need smooth or splined barrels with out taking the truck apart. I cant afford it being down for a week?
There is no tried and true method. But general rule of thumb would be the amount of joints previously installed. If it has less then three sets replaced, we would suggest standards.
I'm the third owner of an 06 4x4 not sure how many time the ball joints have been replaced. Would it be recommended that i buy knurled rather than smooth??
I would suggest smooth, Knurled would only be needed if the truck has had multiple ball joint sets before.
I have a 05 4wd, truck has had the BJ's done at 80k (oem's) and then once again @ around 117k with MOOG's and now at 141k I'm being told they have some slight play. 24k miles !!! Being that I currently run MOOG's would I need knurled ? or could I go smooth? thanks !!?
Most likely with that amount of changes, the knurled would be best suited to insure they are a tight and snug fit into the steering knuckle.
