Spicer is OEM

I am with Jake

I used to look for greasable or even add Zerks to non servicable units
but the sealed for life stuff has been easier and just as long lasting in my experiance between siiliar parts

my 06 has over 100,000 on the Moog BJ's I put in. My 02 has 133,000 on the original and my 01 has 130,000 on the original. For the cheap price of Moog and the miles they last I cant complain. The plus side with greasable is you can always have fresh moist grease in them and keep dirt and moisture pushed out. when I worked as a mechanic my specialty was front suspension and steering. I rebuilt a whole lotta front ends and aligned them on the Hunter. I worked for a shop for a short time that had a John Bean mirror aligner. That was a huge pos.

I have a 6.7 but lets face it, they are basically the same axle (I think). I went Spicer. Non-serviceable.

Moog used to be great but in my research a month ago the concern with Moog is the stuff that is being produced now may not be of the same quality as the stuff from a few years ago so take that with a grain of salt.

You can't go wrong with Spicer, cuz its OEM. Mine went 166k miles. Probably could have squeezed another 10k out of them but I had to do U-joints and tie rods so since it was apart, I did them all anyway.

Hope that helps.

When it comes to mechanics, everything I know is from either breaking it or watching someone else do the same. Then I had to fix it....Is that bad?

Spicer is what I recommend, Moog isn't worth the money, they started going downhill 4-5 years ago.
