SOURCE: ball joints
1.did you install the right ball joints? double check that.depends on gvw
2.worn out tapers in knuckles
3. did the new ball joints come with washers to put under the nuts to get the castle nuts in the right spot and did you use them?
4.is it the joint that is moving or the stud? Was it a cheap ball joint? and did you have the correct tool to install the joints ie a press and sometime a funny socket for the uppers if they are threded in?

There is no torque specs,this nut has to be tightened back like it was ,the best thing to do,was,to late now,is to use a torque wrench to remove the nut,and remember the torque,and when replacing it,torque it back to that spec,the reason being,there is a crush sleeve between the front pion bearing ,and the rear pinion bearing,and it has to be crushed to a certain amount,to aquire deepness into the ring gear,anyway just give it about 25 lbs torque,any more the crush sleeve will crush even more and the deepness of the pinion will be too much.
