I am rebuilding the front suspension on my 68. All new hardware. My local parts store sells Dana Corporation ball joints for twice the price of McQuay-Norris ball joints. Are the Dana ball joints worth it?

Does not seem right that they would be so different in price, as both companies are old-line manufacturers. However, neither is well known for ball joints. I do not think that I would pay extra for a Dana joint over the other. They are probably both good parts.

before you get "store bought" try these people Northern Auto 1-800-831-0884. Prices are vary reasonable.

Thanks JWagner, Harley and Troy for the responses. Harley, Nothern Auto deals McQuay-Norris ball joints for a good price. I think the cost savings will outweigh any/if any sacrafice in quality.
