02 1500 Silverado...source for GM ball joints tie rod ends

AT 186k they are feeling a little too sloppy think its time

Bushings "look" fine but should they be done also?
Dont trust any of the auto parts store stuff....isnt there a lot of fake Moog stuff out there too?

If you go to a decent parts store the Moog will be real. Chain stores and warehouses buy directly from Federal Mogal, there isnít a much of a chance for counterfeit parts to make their way in to the supply chain at that level. Just make sure your boxes are still sealed. Itís the stuff at swap meets and flea markets or sold online by a no-name outfit that you have to worry about.

Rockauto will have what you need with several manufacturers to choose from, including AC Delco. Prices usually beat the chain stores. I've ordered from them several times, rapid shipping.

How about the dealer ???? The originals went 186k why not replace them with the same thing ? Or go to a "real" local parts store and get Moog. That is what I used when I redid the front end of my Tahoe a couple of years ago. No mail order stuff.

Figure the deal is going to bend me over...i feel the same want something thats gonna last another 10 yrs.
Not worth selling so may as well paint and make like new. Its a good solid truck just needs a few things. Its been sitting for 3 years.

Would NAPA be able to get these?

Is there another source for GM parts online other than the local dealer?
(none in town)

There "should" be. Example: I get some parts for my Toyotas online order from a dealership in Kansas https://parts.olathetoyota.com/. Decent discount, and small stuff shipping isn't bad.

I've ordered from this dealer before. Quick service and genuine GM parts. There are other dealers who do the same. Just google GM Parts Online

Our local ones are actually very good, price wise. Then again I don't squawk about a couple of bucks.

Genuine GM parts are most likely to be made by some major OEM supplier. The trick is to find out just which one made the parts you want.

Go to Napa or whatever auto parts store. They should have whatever that truck needs on the shelf.

Re: 02 1500 Silverado...source for GM ball joints tie rod ends

I usually never squawk over a few bucks but dont have one of those things called a job. But wont put stuff on that I know is garbage either.
That GM parts direct looks good, Ill ck with this napa couple older guys working there usually shoot straight.
Need to get this thing back on the road.

Was told by more than one service advisor the tie rod ends wear out quick which they did along with the shocks.
SHould I maybe look into Edelbrock or??

I get a clicking noise to the R side of the steering column, kinda down low.
Any idea what that could be or how that panel comes off? Sounds like a relay or something.

Summit has a lot of stock replacement parts for better prices than most stores.

Thanks, may give them a call also. Dont really trust their store brand stuff anymore
Like Summit but are really hawking a lot of ebay type junk.

On the subject of NAPA I bought a set of their "good" belmar 8mm wires car has never started that quickly & idled so well you can hear it through the exhaust. Replaced the msd and summit brand I had on there. $28

I wasn't clear but I meant name brand stock replacement parts. Their house brand is hit and miss but I rebuilt my Excursions front end for about half the price of other places using Moog parts.

There's a heater door down there that's geared to an actuator. If the door slips a gear, it overtravels and the heater controller continuously tries to bring it back. At least that was the source of clicking on my 03 Silverado.
