Ball joint compatibility across the years

Howdy folks, I'm in the need of new ball joints for a 2002 E-350 weldtech 6 inch lifted 2wd van.
So far looking at the forum I found the rebuildable dynatrac which says it is for 2005 and newer on their site:
https://www.dynatrac.com/rebuildable...e-350-van.html

I called dynatrac and the person on the other side wasn't able to tell me if they would work.
When I check in rock auto for ball joints for a 2002 and 2005 I get pretty much the same results so I was assuming that the ball joints are the same across those two years. but before pulling the trigger I wanted to see if anyone here knows...

Are the ball joints the same between 2002 and 2005???

Your answer can be found by doing a simple parts search online.
Goto NAPA, Autozone, or any other parts supplier and do a search then compare the part numbers.

So following your suggestion I went into an oem ford parts site and pulled:
lower ball joint
8C2Z-3050-A

upper ball joint
8C3Z-3049-B

The PNs match, I checked between 2002 and 2008 and every single year used the same ones. I wonder why dynatrac only advertises theirs for 2005+ but that is a question for another topic.
Thanks!
