F250 ball joint problem

Got new moog ball joint and tried several other brands. Pressed them in until seated. Once i tighten the nut the ball joint pulls out about 1/8".They are not as tight as the junk one that I removed. They even start in alot further by hand. I went to local ford garage and tried a (oem) ball joint in my knuckle and it pushed into the seat by hand with no effort. If the knuckle is wore that bad how is the junk ball joint so tight? Can I get a larger joint? Or better to replace the entire knuckle?

Not following you. Is the joint loose in control arm or is the movement in ball joint it's self? I can't think osf any time I got a bad moog ball joint and have installed many. If movement is in control arm then arm is bad.
