Some trouble in fit for GMC Sonoma, solid-made materials

Comments about MOOG Ball Joint:

I was concerned by another reviewers comment that the threads had stripped during installation - I think this may be due to a fit issue as it took some doing to get the mounting bolts through the mount. I also failed to note the direction the boot grease overflow notch was supposed to face, so I unmounted it and found all the bolts suffered some stripping where I had tapped them through the A-arm - the nuts fit down regardless; I'd offer that there may be less stripping if one makes sure to tighten the nuts and not turn the bolts as much. It doesn't seem to be an issue now that its mounted. I did have to grind the leading edge of my truck's brake-sensor cable'mount as the grease-fitting ring on the ball-joint is wider than stock.

Not sure if these were worth the extra cost

By 

from Northern Wisconsin

Comments about MOOG Ball Joint:

After reading reviews of the Moog ball joints vs. the Driveworks ball joints for my 1995 S-10, I decided to pay more than twice the $$ and go for the Moog ones. The reviews of the Driveworks ball joints complained of poor quality fasteners. and since I was going to be replacing one of these on the side of the road, I wanted to be able to just install it and drive my truck home.
When I picked up my order, the ball joints came in Driveworks boxes, but with a Moog sticker and part number. I chiseled the rivets from the factory ball joint, installed the new one, and when tightening the 4 upper attachment bolts, they stripped out before they were very tight at all. I was only using a 4 inch long 1/4 inch drive ratchet on a 10mm socket. The large lower nut also stripped out WAY before I reached the recommended 61 ft-lbs torque setting, but I was able to get the cotter pin in the hole so I was able to drive the truck home.

If I had known how cheap these 'better quality' Moog parts were, I would have just gone with the cheaper Driveworks ones.

        THE QUALITY OF THESE BALL JOINTS IS OBVIOUS. I DRIVE THIS TRUCK EVERY DAY AT EXPRESSWAY SPEEDS AND FEEL VERY COMFORTABLE KNOWING THAT THESE PARTS ARE IN THE FRONT END OF MY TRUCK. WHEN COMPARING TO THE CHEAPER LINE OF PARTS THE DECISION TO BUY MOOG WAS A "NO-BRAINER".

        • Q:

          I am replacing my ball joints, upper and lower, left and right.
          I prefer Moog. The vehicle is a 1997 Blazer, which is in two wheel drive normally, however it also has a 4 wheel drive capability. It is used in both 2 wheel drive and 4 wheel drive modes. If the description of the ball joint says: "RWD", is that a correct fitment for my Blazer?

            RWD refers to Rear Wheel Drive and this part does not fit your 1997 Chevrolet Blazer rwd.
