I went with Moog Performers for my truck. I recommend looking at rockauto.com, thats where I found the best prices for them.

X2 on rockauto.com. I spent $100 on lower moog joints alone a few weeks ago. They are lifetime warranty though.

I would get them from advance auto parts. Using retailmenot.com (just search in google advance auto parts coupon codes) enter coupon codes on advanced autos website. Then do store pickup. You can actually get them cheaper than rock auto this way and get them the same day (which is great for a 3 day weekend). Plus if you ever have to trade them in because of warranty you don't have to wait.
