    The IFS makes it really similar to working on a 2WD vehicle, ball joints are press fit, HF has a tool to do it on the truck.

    I've done ball joints before and I have that press, I'm trying to figure out if it's hd or not before I order my parts, it has the hd hood but no badges to go along with it, it's also lifted 3" and I'm unsure wether or not I need different ones

    There's 1500hd, but I wouldn't think it to be 8 lug, idk, I'm not as knowledgeable on the gmt800s as I am the squares

    1500HD was 8 lug, kind of a bastard model seeming like a CCSB light duty 3/4 ton. Check your SPID and lift kit to see what's there or supposed to be there.

    This is correct.

    What do you mean by a "zone lift"?
