He is saying if your ball joints are bad then they should be replaced before putting on a lift. If you went with lift spindles they can be done at the same time since you are tearing the truck down that far anyway. That is what I did.

Lift spindles. Basically what they do it lower the wheel hub by 3" (give or take). The rest of your front suspension remains in the factory configuration. For a 98+ 2wd truck, this is the best lift option in my opinion.
