Do a search, particularly around here, on Moog balljoints. I have seen a number of complaints.

The complaints I have seen are consistent with the feedback I have gotten firsthand from friends who have had issues with Moog components on other vehicle platforms.

Moog cc782

Spicer balljoints are solid. Theyre not that expensive.

Re: Moog cc782

I am ase certified for front end components and alignments, I have never heard of moog being a problem manufacture of front suspension parts. Ever. They stand by their warranty, and at one time were one of the only manufacturers that even offered a grease fitting on ball joints, tie rods etc. 51 yrs old, been driving since 1985, in not new at this and I don't give a shit about what Twitter says. I'm into real world data.

Re: Moog cc782

Update for anyone researching coils...the OME 2930 coils went on my jeep today. Jhad to address my bumpstops so I figured may as well update and upgrade the springs while I had things apart. With one extra coil spring isolator on each side of the front I ended up with 2.25 inches lift.. The springs complement the OME shocks that were already in there quite nicely.

Re: Moog cc782

Another thing I'm actually running the coils you posted about, not sure if any of the "critics" are actually running them..........real world data.

Re: Moog cc782

Regarding the CC782 V8 coils, I just finished the refresh of the suspension today about lunch time with my oldest boy. I think they work great and tide is firm initially but am sure as others have mentioned, they will become more compliant in a month or two. Along with that I did the rear Husky leafs and added an OME add-a-leaf. (Have the 2930 coils and 033rb packs and other goodies collecting dust for another day) I'll attach a couple photos from today and one from purchase about 2 years ago. 225k on her today and she is like Brand-used now! It's a great budget move and similar to Upcountry package. I'm running 225/70-16 now and have 245/75-16 to mount in a couple weeks.

Re: Moog cc782

Shawn57nomad not sure about others but the photos are not showing for me.

I hope this set up really does ride like the Up Country. My last XJ was the real package and I ran it that way for about 7 years before putting a full OME and JKS package on it with adjustable arms. With the OME and all the Heim joints I had you could feel everything but it soaked up the bigger stuff so much better.

This old beast I bought the other day needs a refresh so I ordered the same springs and I am hoping for that old ride I remember.

Also considering doing the WJ LCA swap on this XJ again.
