I'm sure you'll like the Dynatrac ball joints. They drive nice and mine have lasted a long time, maybe 160,000 miles. If I had it to do over, I'd skip the free spin hub setup. Here's why: First I had a defective hub that Dynatrac replaced under warrantee. Then a bad stub shaft bearing that damaged the stub shaft and the new hub. Those were replaced by me at my cost. Now the wheel bearings are beginning to talk to me. Twice I was stranded in the mountains in a snow storm with no 4WD before I got it straightened out. Plus there was no increase in mileage that I noticed. It's a nice idea, and it makes the U joints last longer, but it's expensive and requires periodic maintenance that is not easy. I have used 2WD low, but only a couple of times, and 4WD low would have worked too.
