I think I read where Moog are now made in China. But I would still take the $45. Moog over the $15. " Chinette "

How much is your life worth ?
I like to save money as much as anybody else. However when it comes to critical chassis components, paying more for the quality brands is better. Yes, USA made is generally better. However, even Chinese made parts have different levels of quality and that all Chinese parts are not junk. So, stick with a brand name (like Moog or others) that has a reputation for quality, and your chance of getting a part that will not suddenly fail on you, will give you much more piece of mind.

Get the Moog from Rockauto, not the Raybestos. Moog are from China, they all are from China but Moog has quality control in place, the cheap ones don't give a hoot.

MOOG is an old and trusted source, when our TriFives were brand new MOOG was considered the quality suspension part and preferred over OEM in non-Dealer shops.
