Second on MOOG (excellent quality) and Rock Auto (excellent prices and service). Good luck!

UPDATE: ...and don't forget to get a valid Rock Auto coupon code from me or one of the other members here. You can find them easily on Google as well. Nets you 5% off your order, which may be enough to cover the shipping.

Moog cause they're greasable. Pressing them in is easy ya just gotta make sure they start evenly and continue that way, just like anything you've ever pressed before, but the press is shaped for that.

I went against the moog balljoints.. had to pony up a little bit on cash, but well worth it imo. I went with dana ballistic balljoints, had them installed in about half an hour. Lowers only.

Moog makes the upper and lower complete control arm assembly, (4WD) at $300 per side. Wouldn't that be easier, just a bolt on?

,,,because of the torsion bars? That would be a good time to raise the front a little...w/ a key.

Keys are a waste of money. Crank your torsion bars, get an alignment
