    I am replacing my upper and lower control arms on my 91 dually, the shaft that bolts to the body on one lower turns nice, the other doesn't move at all. Can I loosen the nuts to turn the shaft?

    Man I want/need to do this on my dooley. I don't have an answer to your question, but please post up your opinion of the Moog arms. That's what I was planning on getting.

    I read that now Moog is just a name slapped on cheap parts made by multiple chinesium manufacturers. Might be wrong though..

    Put my name on the list of "Not impressed with Moog."

    Never was, even 15 years ago. Stuff just didn't hold up.

    What is so wrong with the control arms? Would it just be better to rebuild existing or something?
