Need New Ball Joints, Best Ones?

I bought some Alloy USA HD Ball Joints and they turned out to be total garbage. Worse than my old worn out ones. So now I'm trying to find some better ones. Does everyone pretty much agree that Moog is the best or no?

I got the Moog Problem Solvers off RockAuto for $80.00 shipped. I will never cheap out on ball joints again. They are beefy and tightened up the steering tremendously.

Ever since I replaced my balljoints I have lethal death wobble. I'll be going down the road at like 65, hit a small pot hole and then it would seem like the whole front axle is about to give out. You think I might need an alignment?
