Ball Joints on an Ex.

I'm doing ball joints on Ryan's (najaf4life) 03 Ex. Original ball joints with 100k on the clock. Fought me the entire time getting it apart. Here are a few pics.







Nice way to spend $600 but, I will have to say that these Pro Steer ball joints are bada$$!







Had to cut the passenger side upper ball joint nut off with a Dremel tool

Thanks.

Are the moog ball joints worth putting in. Obviously the Dynatrac's are better, but it's hard to see why they cost $600, and the moog's cost so much less.

Again, not arguing the Dynatrac's quality, rather the moog's quality/price point in comparison to the Supreme Dynatrac's.

I thought the same thing. The only advantage I see to Dynatrac is that they are rebuildable and they are definately beefier than the MOOG, but you could buy two sets of MOOG vs. one set of Dynatrac. Plus, to rebuild them you still have to remove everything, you just don't have to press them out to repair. So you are still out the money for all of your o-rings and vacuum seals. I really like the Dynatrac but can't justify spending over twice the money. They are pretty though

I did find a site that claims they have customers with 100k miles on the Pro Steer joints with no measurable wear.
