    Moog end links were the death of me! I'll be going OEM next time. I now understand why some guys just keep OEM and replace them more frequently.

    What is the big hubbub about these moog front endlinks?

    I'd keep oem rears, aftermarket are not really worth the cost or benefit.

    For some reason the moogs that are on my gen2 are fine. But the zerk fitting rub the inner wall on my gen1. I found a pair of socket set screws to replace them tho. They are 1/4-28 x 1/4”. Couldnt find anything shorter at Ace.

    Get some vice grips and remove that zerk fitting, find some small rubber plug for it and leave the fitting off until you need to grease them later on. Done deal.

    I let mine snap off against the fender well because I didn't realize there was a clearance issue, then covered the hole with 3M automotive tape, lol. Working fine like that for 2+ years
