Opinions on Moog WJ LCA's?

Hey everyone,

Planning to install some WJ LCA's (want simple reliability) to fit 31's on stock wheels.

Was wondering if Moog was quality product?

Any personal experience with them?

Thanks!

Re: Opinions on Moog WJ LCA's?

You will always find someone on the internet to say a given product is crap.

In my experience, Moog makes a good quality product. That said, I would buy them online, not at your LAPS.

I just installed Moog balljoints and tie rod ends on the front of my 97, and paid about 30% of the LAPS price by going through Amazon. I'm not about to pay $130 for a tie rod end, I don't care if it is 3' long.

Like burntkat said, Moog is usually a pretty good choice as far as aftermarket replacement suspension parts. They'd probably work fine for what you're after.

Re: Opinions on Moog WJ LCA's?

Yes indeed. Consider this - I put Masterpro TREs in 6 months ago, aligned the truck, and had DW. I swapped out the parts for Moog 2 weeks ago, did a ballpark alignment, and the truck rides far better. If I could get the weather to cooperate, I'm confident the DW would be gone.

I have used their problem solver control arms on both my xj's so far and no issues what so ever and recommend them for a stock replacement.
Rockauto has usually had the best prices so far.

Re: Opinions on Moog WJ LCA's?

Years ago I cracked my LCA in my 88XJ. I went to Rock Auto and bought a replacement. The LCA I got was a thinner gauge metal, most likely made in China. Typically, I buy Moog parts. The mistake I made, with my quick purchase, was not buying the Moog LCA. If that Chinese LCA fails, I'll just replace it with a Moog LCA. Lesson learned.

Best regards,

CJR
