Default Part # needed ... Will?

I am needing a lower front ball joint. Let me rephrase that - I NEED ONE BAD!!! On right corners coming into and going out of the corners my steering wheels practically get jerked out of my hands. So today when I had the car up on the hoist while the I was waiting for my new Michelin whitewall tires to get put on the back I grabbed the front wheels and tried jerking them top to bottom and front to back.
Well the passenger side was nice and tight, but that drivers side wheel sure moved when I pulled it top to bottom. Looked behind the wheel while I was moving it and the bottom ball joint is on it'* last leg.
I better get this fixed before the same happens to me that happened to my friends 1995 SLE on Tuesday - he got in his car and started backing out of the drive way when the left rear of the car went "thunk". He got out and found the wheel shoved into the front of the wheel well pointed to the right with that corner of the car sitting down about 4 inches. Turned out his lower ball joint fell apart. $98.12 later he was in good shape (but still needing an alignment).
Anyhow if anyone has the factory part # for the lower front ball joint I need it so I can check the price at www.gmpartsdirect.com (hope it'* cheaper than a Checker or NAPA special).
TIA,
Styles

His included installation though.
Ouch!!! Even with the discount. $57 from Auto Value. Don't know who makes theirs though. I'd like to find some Moog ball joints, but right now I have to settle for the cheapest (can't really even afford them).
