Moog complete Upper Control Arms

Has anybody used the complete control arms for the Squarebody front ends? These things seem like a bargain...Im thinking of using them for the '86 front end going in my '63.

Re: Moog complete Upper Control Arms

I'm using a pair of them on my C10. Satisfied with them so far. As a youngster, I used to change ball joints/ bushings all the time. Now that I'm an old fart, it's so much easier just changing the complete arm assy. Although I've only run them for 1 season, I can't give you an idea of their longevity, but the quality seems to be just fine. Be sure to change the pinch nuts, when making the repair, and be sure to check their torque.

Re: Moog complete Upper Control Arms

The 'RK' series is not their top of the line product ('Problem Solver' series). Not sure if that makes a difference in the big picture of things or not though.
