And you see a lot of mixed reviews on that, that is why I decided to post here and ask people's opinions, plus they are a year old and I don't know if things have change.

So anyway, any one have experience with either brands on those parts and have any input on them? I want to make sure I don't buy something that's going fail fast on me.

Moog is by far the best out there imo. If you keep them greased, which yes the Moog parts are greaseable, they will never wear out. I was a service manager for 20 years and moog was always the go-to because I knew I would have zero problems.

+1 on the MOOG, they make excellent suspension products. Just as good as Oem in my opinion.

Moog is probably the best, but the Raybestos is good as well. If the difference is only a few bucks, Moog; if it is 2x the cost...Raybestos.

My Durango has both Moog and Raybestos parts on it, FWIW.

Yea I did like how you can grease the moog parts, but was nervous how people have said MOOG has started to go down hill in quality and make sure the parts don't come in white boxes because they are the horrible ones?

Price difference between the two for ball joints is $9 I believe.

How often do you grease if I pick MOOG, which so far looks like everyone likes.

Remember the old signs that used to say oil change and lube?

Yeah, that's how often. Each oil change, give them a squeeze of grease.
