Just broke another upper ball joint. I always use Moog parts but it seems like 2000 miles is about all I can get out of them. Anyone know of something bettet?

The balljoints are breaking? Where or what is breaking on them? Moog is good quality stuff. If maybe one has broken I would lean towards a defect in the balljoint of some sort, however if you have broken two or more I'd have to start questioning the front end as something must be causing it.

Give details of the vehicle and hopefully someone here can help.

Ever since Moog outsourced to India it is pretty much a roll of the dice whether you get a good part or a piece of junk.

Hmmmm, I never knew that. I guess these companies are only concerned with the bottom line, rather than putting out quality parts. All I can say is buy a North American product whenever possible. How about TRW stuff, or are they outsourcing like everyone else?

If shopping @ AutoZone, do not purchase Duralast suspension components. These are CRAP. Yes, CRAP.

I had to return two inner tie rods for a 78 Cutlass where the grease fitting was in the wrong place.

What I did - I threw the tie rods on the counter although AutoZone is a capitalist pig.
