    To be honest, I hate my moog endlinks. They clunk so damn much ever since the day those fuckers when on. Also don't forget napa gold filters.

    If you know of some better that are cheap DD replacement let me know. I have not heard a ton of rage stories about the moog but I am sure they are out there.

    Well you do offer some of the cheapest replacement knobs that are still very nice quality so I would consider them a DD replacement.

    I haven't seen any discussion on it but I believe this "Valvoline with Zerex technology" is the same crap. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Valvoline-Asian-Vehicle-Antifreeze-with-Zerex-Pre-Mix-1-gal/49660461

    I also have the Motive catch bottles and find them useful - even though I thought them superfluous initially.
    Set of 2: http://a.co/2BMXRM5
    2 because together they hold a full quart (no emptying until the end of the job), and you can have two people bleeding different locations at the same time if you like.

    Moog endlinks are noisy as hell.
    NAPA Gold brake pads arent bad. Some fading at a HPDE @NJMP and no issues after a dozen or so auto x events

    FWIW, my moog endlinks front/rear are all working well so far. The fronts did snap off the upper zerk fitting bc they sit too deep into the wheel well and make contact but nfg

    I have read reports of people removing them and putting a small bolt in there instead. IDK what size or anything else if anyone knows.

    Looks like it might be a 6mm screw, hmmm.
