What up CL,
I finally replaced my all of my front end suspension parts. I thought I would make a post that lists the part numbers, quality of the parts ordered, and how much every thing costs. I replaced everything because there were too many unknowns about the car when I bought it. Along with the steering wheel shimmering and the tires were not aligned. The Upper ball joints were loose and the Upper control ARM bushings were cause a clunking when turning the steering wheel. I wanted to be on the safe side and change it all before a bigger problem comes, like a ball joint failure. Pm me if interested in the OEM Lower Control Arms
I ordered all my parts from RockAuto and used a 5% discount that I found on retailmenot.com. cost shipped to my door was $548.50. It could have been cheaper if I would have went with Raybestos Upper Control Arms instead of the Moog.
Parts List: RK620336 & RK620335
Moog Upper Control Arms. Made in Taiwan no Japan like the Balljoints. In my opinion, Raybestos is in Taiwan and is $40 cheaper per are than Moog. The quality appears to be good, and they appear to be of the same thickness as OEM.
Moog Lower Ball Joints
K500101 & K500102
Stamped Made in Japan. Sankei 555. With Zerk Fittings
Moog Outer Tie Rods
ES80585 & ES80584
Moog embossed Rubber boot with zerk Fittings.
Raybestos Inner Tie Rods (Service Grade) 401-2103B
Went with Raybestos because they were cheaper than Moog and I figures the quality couldn't be that different. When.it arrives I was surprised on how well it was built. My driverside inner was bent and the ball & socket was terribly loose.
Lastly Raybestos Lower Control Arms
Stamped Made in Taiwan, bushings look sturdy and durable.
