Steering components

Has anyone found anything better than the Moog replacement stuff for tie rods, centerlink idler & pitman?

Re: Steering components

..well you can spend more $ than Moog. IDK "how much" better but Detroit Speed has a good reputation

Re: Steering components

Proforged seems to be pretty good stuff.

Re: Steering components

FWIW the only non Moog steering part I have is the ProForged Idler arm. Have not had it installed for very long so can't comment on long term but it "appeared" better than the Doorman replacement part. YMMV

Re: Steering components

How is it that Pro Forged does their 1,000,000 mile warranty? Are the parts that good or do they count on no one making a warranty claim? I've read their Limited warranty rules and it is pretty limited and does seem they could refuse pretty much any claim Has anyone filed a warranty claim with Pro Forged and how did it work out? I'm just bored & curious

If you can find old TRW, its good. TRW is one of many that was bought out. Just a name. Goes with federal mogrol, sealed power, all owned by the same company. Sealed power piston are not even US made anymore. I install about $70K in Moog parts a year. The new ball joints without the boot look goofy , but never had a come back for a properly maintained ie "greased" regularly Moog part.
