Moog for dummies

Im a little confussed here.
Moog parts are hard to find in the UK, but I hear there good items and Im trying to keep away fron cheap chinese stuff of E-bay.
But I do see a big difference in asking prices. If Im reading correctly, Moog do standard replacement items, and a superior "problem solver" item that costs more ?
Im wondering if some retailers are calling them "Problem solvers" when they may just be the standard Moog item. Thats why they seem cheap.

Thanks

Re: Moog for dummies

What i know about problem solvers is that they are non standard parts. For example excentric ball joints for the front suspension, which you can use to change the camber.

Re: Moog for dummies

X2 on what Frank says. The Problem Solver line is usually a "workaround" for a particular issue. For example the ball joints are very useful for guys with big lifts who want to dial in their alignment specs which they can't do otherwise. The standard Moog line is what I used for all my front end parts.

Re: Moog for dummies

Thanks for the advice guys.
So baiscally for everyday driving, if you dont have a special needs, the everyday Moog is good to go. Im reading the Crown items are not highly rated, and the Chrysler OEM parts arnt much either !

Re: Moog for dummies

Moog standard replacement items are about as good as it gets. Very sturdy parts, its the brand I always try to chose. Especially over cheap store brands.
