I'm also wondering this myself. 2000 4wd. Just had an estimate of $1,700 from Firestone, and $1,600 from a local alignment shop. They both want to use mostly MOOG with a few OEM pieces. I think that convinced me to do it myself as well.

I just ordered a kit that contains 4 ball joints (uppers n lowers) and all the tie rods joints for my 05 Excursion 4x4. Paid $136 shipped on ebay. Proably not as good as the Moog but you can't beat the price. We will see how they hold up.

Just took a look at the gerson parts ebay site. Hell of a price difference for sure. Just hope they hold up! Wonder how many others have used them and with what kind of results.

What all did you get from Moog for that price? For the front end parts I'm needing I can't seem to find it below 650-700 for just that alone.

Yea I is that hard to believe. The red dhead steering box is $350 on there website. So he got All Moog parts for $150? I don't think so. That's (4) ball joints, like 3-4 tie rod ends and a pitman arm. If so post the website.

Ball joint is were I got lucky. I paid 35$ each. Someone had placed balljoints under the old moog part number and had them on sale.
There are deals to be had if you look. Like the monthly discount offers summit sends out
