Default MAS industries Upper control arms/ ball joints

Hey guys. I have a popping/ squeaking on my passenger side and it has all the symptoms of bad ball joints. I'm on an extremely tight budget and can't really afford moog at sixty some dollars a side. And don't want to let this go any longer or I'll ruin a brand new tire. I found some MAS industries upper control arms/ball joints with the grease zerk etc for around 35 a piece. Does anyone have experience with this product and are they any good? Thanks!

Update on the control arms/ ball joints. Got them on with no problem, been riding with them for about 3 days now and everything seems fine now. No more funny noises and the ride seemed to smooth out a lot. I'd say 74 dollars well spend! So far at least

so you didn't do the lowers at the same time?
did you have to fill them with grease, or did they come full?

Sorry I haven't replied. But no. I did not. I don't have anyone with a ball joint press and my local autozone does not have one available either. So I just did the top.
