Parts differance
I am going to have to replace the sway bar links on my towpig(2001 SuperDuty) . The cheapo one from Advance, O'Reilleys and AutoZone run right around $20.oo ea. The Moog brand is $8799 at Advanced,$47.79 on RockAuto. My question is  are the Moogs twice as good as the cheap part store brands? Both have a limited Lifetime warrenty.
Just a cheap Zuk guy,

Moog is top shelf stuff.  I haven't kept up with it like I used to....it may pay to find out who supplies the house brand stuff.  Should it happen to be Moog....just saying.  [thumbsup]   If not ya can't go wrong with it.  Buy once cry once.   ;D
All I want from tomorrow is to get it better than today.

Claiming you are offended is essentially saying you are incapable of controlling and managing your emotions, so everyone else should do it for you.

I just replaced some sway bar bushings and used the Moogs. They seem to still be very high quality. I have been starting to think , if I am doing it myself, thus saving money, why not spend a little extra on the parts. Even with brakes, rotors etc I have been going with the brand name stuff.I also like to use the user reviews. Jim

Oh yea another thought, other than oil, filters and batteries I do have a tendency to buy on line if I have time but if not I go to the mom and pop store. Better service and some of the chain store stuff is not so good. Jim

Nor familiar with the end links in the Ford SD, but I would definitely use poly bushings in them if they are available.  :)

Well I pulled the trigger and went with the brand name "MOOG". They came in Wednesday. I thought about putting them on Thanksgiving day, but woke up to rain. I ain't laying on the cold wet ground. So I finally got around to putting them on today, drove to work to check on the plant, no clunking or rattles.  [thumbsup]

I like MOOG products. I ordered 6 U-joints for my TT from Rock Auto. Came last Monday. They sure looked nice and beefy! [thumbsup] [thumbsup]
