Ball Joints

Which brand ball joints do you like for Dana 44 & 60 axles?
Moog Problem Solver, Raybestos Professional Grade, McQuay-Norris, Napa Chassis Parts, Spicer, etc.

I like the ones that are greaseable after being installed.
I've had good service from Moog (their upper ball joint has the grease fitting angled at the bottom/side).

May God's Grace Bless You

'78 BRONCO: 508" stroker, TFS heads, Dominator MPFI & DIS, cold air induction, dual 3" exhaust/Magnaflow mufflers, 100HP progressive dry direct-port NOS, A/C, Lentech Strip Terminator wide-ratio AOD, 3:1 Atlas II, modified Dana 44/60-lockers-4.10s, hydroboost/4-disc brakes, ram-assist/heim joint steering, Cage long radius arms, custom traction bars, 4" lift, 35" mud tires

I use the MOOG with no problems.

If you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much space!

I used to use moog but have been using the new napa chassis and have had really good luck. Super duty ball joints are about a joke but the napa chassis seem to last about the longest.

It's very important to set the right preload on them
