Is your wobble coming from the front, or the rear? I would get rid of the duralast BJ's and go with moog one's. They are a little pricey, but better results in the long run

Moog are just as bad.
Go Spicer or don't do it.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

To my knowledge (and reviews read) moogs were a very solid choice? Any reason why they arent?

Ive recently acquired a wobble around 45mph i think its due to a lack of an alignment after wheeling i hope it goes away... What should i tell the tire shop to do when they align my jeep? Ive searched but i get mixed opinions

Take a gander in the tj section at the ball joint threads. Moog generally only lasts about 5-10k no matter the tire size. sometimes they don't even last two wheeling weekends. Spicers rarely go out before 30k on the same rigs. If you look you can even get full sets of Spicer joints for less then moog joints to.

Moog ball joints for Jeeps are junk. Personal experience there too.

Moog used to be good, that was about 12 years or so ago for Jeeps. They do still make somewhat ok parts for other vehicles, but being Chinese made in a lot of lines i try to avoid them for American or Canadian made when possible.

1/8" total toe in.
5 caster if you still have the cam bolts in place and they can reach that angle. Unless that angle compromises your pinion angle.


If you have adjustable control arms, do it all yourself as no shop will touch them without charging several hours labor instead of your standard alignment fee.

I'm not a fan of Moog any more either . Like Rat said , they use to be the best until the started outsourcing to China . Not all are stamped "problem solver" , just labeled . Tsk tsk tsk .

I like my "made in the USA" parts . I refuse to knowing support the Chinese economy . China = JUNK .

I don't shop at Wal-Mart , Canadian Tire , and a few other places . They do nothing to support the manufactoring sector of our economies , in fact , they are killing our economies .

I like the Spicer joints , but , prefer the XRF's , which are made in the USA . Excellant quality
