Magus2727 Tously is a Ford Dealership. The parts department namely Steve has worked out the ability to provide parts at I think only 5% above cost. so even after shipping you can get stock OEM parts for cheaper than if you just walked into your dealer.

Magus2727 I have discussed with MOOG a while back and they confirmed that the individual ball joint is more "heavy duty" and a better ball joint. but that does involve drilling out your old ones...

macdiesel The moog ball joints by themselves come with greaseable fittings. You can still grease the non-greaseable ones with a needle adaptor n your grease gun

nate4027 The control arm ball joint combo are sealed and not greaseable.

You're the second person I've heard say the Moog brand comes with the correct bolt. So Moog's on top of it.

I've been thinking about getting new control arms. Do the Moog ball joints come with grease fittings or are they sealed?

FreakNastyFocus I didn't use the bolt that came with my ball joint. It looked weaker then OEM.

SVTFOCI03 Wow, it's good to know finally that it's not just my car with this issue! Ill be swapping in an OEM bolt and nut ASAP!
