What is the difference between the K80052 and the K8708T, as well as the K80054 and K8710T??

The second parts seem to be "problem solvers" and more expensive. So what's the dillio?

I priced out the following for me:

1 MOOG K80052 - U RH C/A w/ b $84.79
1 MOOG K80054 - U LH C/A w/ b $84.79
2 MOOG K8696T - L BJ (problem solver) $31.89

$247.56 w/ $46.94 S/H = $294.30 US

Exchange @ .92/1.00 = $319.89 CAN

The camber kit was $16.51 each, but had to ship them from a second location, causing the S/H to jump to around $83 US.....SO for a combined total of around $80 for a pair of camber kits shipped, I can get a pair of camber kits here for around $20 taxes in and a 5 min drive...LOL

So my question is, what's the "problem solver" tag?

The passenger has a wierd hook shape to it, costs a teeny more to produce I suppose - Not too sure why it costs 20 bucks because of that, but hey.. single arm is teh way to go! Moog FTW!

You know, reading the Rock Auto Parts listing for the MOOG Ball Joints is confusing.
There are oversized Ball Joints, do these fit the T-Bar Suspensions and are they HD vs the standard BJs that they sell, what about HD Arms.

Do the MOOG Arms have the oversized BJs and are they replaceable if needed are they HD ?

I will be installing a SL Lift Kit soon and wanted to replace the BJs with the SL Kit and with HD versions if available but it is confusing to try and determine which is which and what will fit what; not to mention trying to find them on the web for short cash ?

Any one out there work these part numbers before ?

Thanks,

Honestly - the only reason I have these part numbers, is from a post on the forums about a guy swapping out to single arms.. Actually, I think it was Shane's origional post questioning what the difference was between 2 arm, and single arm UCA's. I pulled all these numbers from the post - the biggest benefit of course, is being able to replace bearings way dang quick compared to teh stock setup.

As far as numbers for anythign superlift wise - might have to check with Shane perhaps on that, since he is running a superlift and moogs

The SL Kit doesn't have any arms anyway but when I do the lift I want to replace it all, then and there.

WowMike2001,
So you are replacing the upper arms with MOOG Units, do these units have the "Oversized" U-Joints with them; what is an "Oversized" U-Joint anyway ?

Are there any other choices for BJ and UCA on the market or are MOOG the best ?

Moog's best in this situation - its the only one with replaceable ball joints like they are.. its a steep price to get into (~$300), but then yoru only in it down the road for a quick ball setup for 30-40 bucks.. instead of having to spend 120 per side for a ball joint setup with stock hardware

Not a clue myself - they sound like somethign that coudl be used for larger tires? But I have no idea - maybe anyone with a tad more technical knowledge on the balljoints themselves can chime in?

K80052 and K80054 are PS and DS UCAs for 98+ 2WD Rangers with coil spring suspension.

K8708T and K80068 are the DS and PS 1-piece UCAs for 98+ 4WD and 2WD w/torsion bar suspension.

K8710T is for the original 2-piece passenger side UCA that was used on 98~2003.5 torsion bar Rangers. It replaces only the ball joint and carrier, not the complete control arm. Although there still may be some available in the parts pipeline, replacement parts for the 2-piece style arm have been discontinued by both Ford and MOOG and superceded to the 1-piece style replacement arm (MOOG #K80068).

Just got off the E-Mails with Rock Auto and it was suggested to use the following parts:

K8708T LH-UCA w/oversized BJ - $84 on Amazon.com - $92 Rock Auto.
K8710T RF-UCA w/oversized BJ - $87 on Amazon.com - $92 Rock Auto.
K8695T LBJ, x2, not oversized - $30 - on Amazon - $32 Rock Auto.

I hear there is a 5% discount at Rock Auto with the "CODE", not sure, but the prices gets closer.

Amazon is free shipping, Rock Auto is $9, widens the gap a little.

Your call.

There are MOOG Alignment pieces but not sure whether to buy before the kit is installed or wait.

The MOOG Arms and Oversized BJs sound a little HD for the Ranger, again not sure.
There is an over sized LBJ but it is not called out for my Ranger Edge, maybe the FX4 and XLT ?

Are the LCAs off of an FX4 or XLT different, maybe just larger BJs ?
Will the LCA from the FX4 or XLT trucks fit the Ranger Edge and other Rangers with the smaller diameter BJ ?

Too many questions... need answers before the kit goes in.
