    Moog vs. Parts Master


    Support FSC and see no ads! - Click Here
    I'm not scraping or anything, I have my 96 Suburban on 20's but not dropped, and need to replace Idler & Pitman arms, and both inner and outer tie rods. I can spend $354 on Moog parts, or $130 on Parts Master. I know, I know, you get what you pay for, but since I'm not off-roading and my truck isn't dropped, is it really worth spending almost triple on Moog parts?

    Normally I'd just go with the Moog's, but I just rebuilt the engine, replaced ignition system twice, about to replace injectors, need shocks and tires so anywhere I can save a buck I'm all over it.

    Since it's not lifted and you dont offroad it I'd just let the front end hold out, and deal with the popping and creeking intill you have the money to buy the front end parts.

    LOL, guy at the parts store said they come in a "white box", so he doesn't even know where they're made!

    I'd walk away then, and buy the Moog/spicer/dana names.

    I can't wait, she's shaking really bad. Basically what your saying is spend the extra bread for the Moog's.

    Re: Moog vs. Parts Master

    I take it you are buying from Oreilly's? parts master is the house brand and made overseas, I would go with the MOOG parts, I just replaced my idler arm with a MOOG unit and it was built much better than the stock unit.

    Moog it is. Found a much cheaper price locally, $285 for Idler & Pitman arms, both inner and outer tie rods, and sleeves.

    Federal Mogul owns Moog. Moog is also Parts Master. Just like Moog some parts come from China, Mexico, or USA. Most parts even share the same part number.

    Re: Moog vs. Parts Master

    Actually the Oreilly cheapo rebox is Master Pro though sometimes we get them without the relabel and parts master is one of the suppliers I think (red white and blue or something label?).

    The main difference with MOOG is the quality of the ball and socket, I forget the technical specs (I always breeze through the training videos) but its a fancy metal socket that lasts a hella long time if greased properly, plus the ball and socket are usually oversized to spread the load when compared to stock or cheapo. If its listed as a MOOG "problem solver" it means the stock design was undersized or just a ****ty design and they improved it with a better design. The problem solver stuff seems to be the most expensive but it lasts way longer. A lot of the cheapo chassis parts brands use really low grade Chinese steel too which is too soft for that application.

    When we were a Checker I wanna say it was all Raybestos and Raymold?, same company though the blue box Raybestos was the good stuff and the other was the red box cheap stuff, I totally redid the whole steering linkage on my K1500 about 100k miles and 8 years ago and its still nice and tight. It was all also way bigger in the socket than stock so they are a good brand too.

    Just ordered all this, inner and outer TRE's, TRE sleeves, pitman arm, idler arm, and idler arm bracket, all MOOG, for less than $200 for my '98 K1500. Combination of RockAuto.com, eBay, and Amazon.
