I know there has been some discussion of this before, but I've got a little more to ask. I have been under the impression that Moog was the best brand to purchase as far as wearable front end parts go.
That said, I have found that a brand named McQuay-Norris is available for a better price and at least the tie rod ends I purchased for my daily driver looked great. I was in a bind b/c the tie rods needed replaced NOW and I couldn't wait for the parts store that carries Moog to order some for me. Anyway, they were made in the USA and were identical in appearance to the ones I removed from the car-nice, heavy castings etc.
Anyway, in searching for an idler arm and a fast ratio power steering pitman arm for my 68 I have found a huge range in prices for pieces from TRW, Moog, McQuay-Norris and Rare Parts.
Now, I know you get what you pay for, but considering these are all made in USA what would you guys do?
By the way, I have also noticed that some pitman arms are greasable while others aren't-I'm really interested in comments regarding this. Let the opinions fly....
