I used regular autozone upper ball joints with my arms. So I'm sure that those moog joints would work right.

Bilteins are nice! at Vatozone they come with lifetime warranty...Worth the cost.

Thats good. How much did you get them for? On my truck I've blown out 2 bilsteins. Got free replacements hehe!

The only problem I had with those Duralast joints is that I could not get that locking ring on. But its really not a big deal, the joints stay in place with the spindle holding it. Fabtech kit comes wit moog joints.
