Raybestos ball joints

How many of you guys have used the Raybestos ball joints? I'm going to be replacing mine soon and I was gonna use MOOG but they have been bought out by another company (so I was told) and since their quality has went down hill. I personally see a new ball joint directly out of the box that had no threads. A buddy of mine has installed quite a few Raybestos joints and seems to be having good luck with them. Just curious what you guys think. Dyna Trac would be nice but I don't have the extra cash.

Can't speak to the Raybestos, but the DynaTracs are NICE! Installed mine earlier this year.

Federal Mogul still owns Moog. No ownership change.

Moog medical devices (an entirely different company) was bought out

I've installed a set of them also and they are definitely nice but I'm not spending $650+ for joints. If the truck was lifted or had a lot less miles on it, I might go that route. I do agree with you, they are for sure a quality product.

I'll talk to the guy again that told me that. Maybe I misunderstood him. They might still be owned by Federal Mogul but their quality has dropped.

I have them on my truck and after 30K they still feel like new. I am very happy with them and the price is very competitive. I watched the Video and it looks like they have a cool design.

I installed the Raybestos ball joints and tie rod ends for basically a new trac bar. I am very happy so far with their product. Have not put a lot of miles on them yet. I had heard a bit of bad things about the moog ball joints from online to a couple diesel shops around town that have installed them. Mostly about memory steer. Although that may be more of an install issue but oh well. I decided o try the Raybestos.

I also have the Raybestos. Talked to my mechanic before going with them and he said he would never install another set of moogs in his shop he recommended napa but I went ahead with the Raybestos. So far so good with the Raybestos.
