did you purchase the moog offset or ' adjustable ' BJs aiming to correct pinion angle of lift ( which is maybe related to your second question about angle finder ) ?

That is the only way I can see anyone at napa or wherever charging that much for two crappy Moog balljoints which you're gonna have to replace in a year or two unless you have stock wheels/tires w/ that 4" of lift ( I doubt) .

You should ask first on here ; you could have used a vendor code for JKOwners members at @RiverCityOffroad or contacted @PIG from Synergy Mfg about getting some 1ton BJs and not paid but around $150-200 for much heavier duty bjs .
Likewise , you could go further into things and splurge on rebuildable , adjustable tension and lifetime guaranteed BJs of the highest quality in the form of RareParts balljoints which I believe are sold through SkyJacker now as well as thru RareParts but those are $600-$700 bucks.


So, yeah; you have paid far far too much for a moog balljoint if you were charged almost $400 for a set from Napa

Here's a thought ; post their part # for us as well as the intended purpose of what you're asking about an angle finder for . You wanna have pinion side of driveshaft with +\- 2 ° of each other if running double cardon CV driveshafts which you need with 4" of lift. Usually this is accomplished with adjust control arms . There is no steering issue nor "caster" setting on a Jeep JK/JKU that's gonna be corrected by offset balljoints .

Please post images and part number of the bj so better advise can be shared.

also, I meant to include :

We like helping new Jeep people and meeting other enthusiasts so instead of just joining to get an answer , take 3-5 min and read the forum membership rules then head to our Welcome Room and introduce yourself . It isn't mandatory but sure seems more couthe than joining and introducing yourself by asking strangers to help with a problem before even saying hello or providing any details about your rig .
It's a nice community that has fun and knows sh*tloads about the Jeep JKs . Just a suggestion, ok? :smile2:

I have 99K on my o7 JKU and need ball joints. 4WP recommended Alloy.
Anyone run these - or is there a more affordable, quality replacement?

I'd recommend at a bare minimum Spicer HD BJ's. Especially over the Moogs. Moog used to be decent, but that's been a while.

You can find the Spiders right around $100ish. There are better options out there, which cost more $ the closer you get to the best - as with most anything.

Good luck!

I have been running dynatrac ball joints with zero issues with 37s. They nice to where you can rebuild them and not have to take them out

I don't see "HD". I find Dana Spicer 2007354 BALL JOINT SET for 2007 to 2014 JEEP JK WRANGLER, RUBICON and UNLIMITED with DANA 30 or DANA 44

About the same price as the Alloy, why do you feel they are better?
