Nice! Where did you order the moogs from. I still have to do mine! From the website, or can you get them anywhere for less?!
Good luck!

Nevermind, compared prices from multiple websites. Rock Auto.com has best prices!

Thinking about doing the lower ball joints myself, please post more on your progress!
