I am thinking about replacing ball joints on a 1989 Ford Tempo with
150,000 miles. The lower control arm with the ball joint is replaced
as a unit . There are various brands of ball joints available . It
seems the price of Moog ball joints is about the same as the price of
Motorcraft ball joints . I would like to hear opinions based on your
experience working with these parts . The Moog brand is supposed to
be a high quality product .
NAPA chassis parts is also considered a high quality ball joint .
Some of the other brands I have found are : McQuay-Norris , Perfect
Circle , Spicer , Mevotech , Chassis Select , Coni-Seal , Tread
Which of these have you found to provide the best durability and
I usually try to put quality parts on my car . The installation work
involved is the same with any of the brands . To make the effort
worthwhile and achieve good results it makes sense to install good
I believe there may be readers who have experience with some of these
brands . What would you recommend ? Thanks for the help .
