Anybody have them, and are they worth the cost?

Where is a good place online to buy them?

And, I assume they just replace the OEM ones without any modification?

Having a hard time finding anybody who sells the upper ball joints.

And forgive my newbieness, but are 2 lowers needed for each side? That doesn't make sense. Parts guy said yes, I said "Don't think so.".

Yeah, Moog is the brand I want, and I don't think I need them really, but since we're doing all the suspension work anyways - it's the perfect time to replace the original 150k mile parts.

the upper balljoint is integral.....the upper arm and balljoint are a package deal...no ifs ands or buts. So, you want the upper control arms..as for the lowers, you can get just the balljoint(one on each side) as they are seperately servicable on the arm, requiring a a press and arm removal. But you can get a complete lower arm with new bushings and balljoint. While you are at it, go ahead and relace the strut rod bushings also, it is the "bar" that goes from the side of the lower arm to the k member. The Rod to arm bushings are about 13$, I use TRW, while the Rod to K member bushing is about 50$ or so. I have Moogs, they are polyurethane.

have fun

Yeah, about Rock Auto, they didn't list the top one for Moog.

Oh well, will stop at an AutoZone or something and pick them up, I don't want to be buying stuff like that over the net anyways.

Will have to get my butt in gear, the car comes out of storage next weekend :ztoohot: !

Carquest's rebadged stuff is Moog. every were else I've seen is TRW, which is what is stock on my car.

There both the same, it's just that the Moog has grese fittings.
