Good choice with the moog. I replaced mine with TRW and one already failed after a year. Replaced it with a moog.

the right side upper looks like the one i have on my truck and its a 2-piece arm.... I thought they went to 1-piece in 2001?

edit: nvm it was later on they swapped to a full 1-piece arm
