Re: Ball joint snapped in offshore tubular control arm!!!

When I had my shop opened, I gave the customer a choice on which suspension parts they wanted me to use. After having both lower ball joints fail on a Dodge ram within a month of each other, I never gave them a choice again. I only used Moog and haven't looked back. I have never had a failure like this before but didn't want to risk it.

I can't remember where I saw the post at, but there was a post about Moog parts being made in different countries. I went and checked my ball joints for my S10 and mine said made in USA.
