    anyone ever buy this brand? This seems too good to be true. Lol, at this price you could afford to do it once a month...

    They are mehhh, but would probably be fine. I recently went with 555 for my outers and “moog” branded inner tie rods. All together probably cost me 4x’s that.

    Yeah, it’s amazing the difference in quality/price that is available. It’s borderline frightening knowing some of this junk is doing 70mph somewhere

    Last time I looked at buying stuff from RockAuto I nearly dropped dead at the shipping charge... hopefully they did something about it because I really like the site.

    I decided to go w/ the Moog, shame they aren’t greasable. I’m an old guy though, my days of beating on it are over, Moog should get me 50k anyway

    It has been a while since I've bought from them. Last time was some moog balljoints and other stuff. Don't remember the shipping, but I don't remember having a heart attack, either.
