Dana 44 balljoint strength? Upgrades?

Ok Ive googled teh webs and asked around but does anyone offer a upgraded stronger balljoint for a d44? Basically im lookin for something to carry more weight. Think 78 crewcab with a 12v cummins and dual wheels. Ive got a pair of 2nd gen dodge dually wheel spacers for the front. Not worried about u joints or axle shafts as itll be a tow rig and dd. Just worried about the balljoints wearing out 2-3 times a year.

Dynatrac has a set but they are quite expensive.

Try poly performance. They make d44 balljoint for most applications.

Poly performance was the first place google showed. But in the description is says OEM HD. Leads me to believe its just a spicer normal old balljoint. May have to contact them

Dynatrac only offers balljoints for a d60 according to their site.

Never mind it's for the 07-10 jeep 44.

I'm running the ones with a blue boot from napa talked about in this thread. 8 years 37s 2" back spaced wheels. 30k not a problem. I'm not sure any Dana 44 ball joint is up to the weight of a diesel though.
