Default Upper control arm

My ball joints are going on my 06 4x4 ranger so it's time with the old and in with the new. Wanted to see what people paid for a new control arm because a shop by my house wanted 130 bucks just for the part and I think that's to much. I might buy the part my self and install since it's not that bad and then get a alignment. Also my truck only has 56k miles on it.

I would be OK with that price for a good brand greasable type, like Moog. An UCA for my 2001 4WD is $120 at Advance, but I usually order online and use promo code "TRT30" to save 30% and then pick up in store.

Default Re: Upper control arm

I have a 99 ranger XLT 3.0L 2wd coil spring front suspension.
I need to replace the upper control arms. The truck only has 40K miles on it but the ball joint seals are rotten.
I have been researching various parts stores and see that most of them offer the same control arms at two different prices. Usually one is prices at $40 and the other for $90. Is there a difference in quality?
Or is it that one is made in the USA and the other in china?
Which manufacturer is recommended. I see Moog and TRW as well as others. I only drive the truck about 2K a year and only occasionally have it loaded to capacity.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
