Ball Joints / Tie rods and CVboots
« on: August 14, 2017, 09:50:49 AM »
Hey has anyone used the OEM Sankei ball joints and TRW tie rods? Also any thoughts on Moog verses EMPI on the CV boots?

MOOG has failed me more times than you can count on your hands with my Monty. I'd suggest steering clear from them for anything. Plus OEM balljoints are just a few dollars more and fit and work tons better. That's just my experience.

Ive Used the EMPI CV boots for the inner CV's on a couple different Gen 2's with good results.
