Moog Endlinks Crap

I installed these endlinks like 3 weeks ago. Probably put about 700 miles on them since. Started hearing a knocking sound that sounded worn endlinks over the past few days. I get under the car to check the suspension, and the right endlink and balljoint completely separated.

Guess ill go with OEM

Are you hella low? They aren't adjustable, so if yer super low yer gonna have all kinds of pre load on them; they weren't made for that.

Yeah, they shouldn't have busted cuz of that. Sometimes you just get bum parts. Happened to my buddy once with his whiteline end links believe it or not.

I'd be willing to bet they'll give you a new set if you asked.

nothing, they're stock replacement parts. I've got about 24k miles on AC Delco endlinks that I got from Rockauto. Replaced all 4, still good.

They're definitely beefier than the stock ones, but I believe the Moog's have built in zerk fittings too. Other than that, they're just stock replacement parts.

Yep ^ if you are lowered at all there are stresses on the system that were never there before. It will cause certain parts to wear out faster then they should.

Make sure you grease the new ones.
