im in the middle of doing my TRE,s balljoints and rebuilding the front diff. Balljoints are one place you dont want to skimp, bigger tires will follow the ruts of the road and you need good steering joints to keep em in line.

You'll need a 4-pronged special socket for the balljoint sleeve that screws into the yoke(the C), im getting mine tommorow. Its snap-on part number S9613. I got moog balljoints, but if you read this thread you'll get some decent info:
