My rig weighs 10,400 pounds dry. Load it with gasoline, water, personal belongings and its north of 11,000 pounds. I spoke with a couple of different companies about Dynatrac and EMF. Based on their feedback and suggestions i chose the EMF joints soley due to the weight of my truck.
Its a difficult topic because someone will always be personally offended by an opinion so i will just leave it at that. At this point i dont have enough miles on them to honestly give any kind of unbias review of the product. They are well built and the obvious difference is the ease of greasing them when compared to competitors.
Installation was straight forward as long as you follow the instructions. If you dont follow the instructions you will end up with a knuckle that is seized or memory steer and you will have to start over.
There is far more to a balljoint than what meets the eye. MOOG is just another off the shelf stock replacement part and doesnt hold a candle to the EMF or Dynatrac balljoints.
Heres some food for thought... Years back i installed MOOG tierods on a pickup i had at the time. Course the warranty stated "LIFETIME" warranty. Six months later one of the tierods was completely shot already. They gave me another replacement tierod and i spent the afternoon laying in the driveway for a second time. Thats when i realized "LIFETIME" warranty doesnt really mean anything if im spending my time laying in the driveway under a truck replacing the same parts every six months. I have to place at least a minimal value on my personal time as its the most valuable thing any of us have in life. Once spent, you cant replace it at any price.
With that said a person has to ask themself... Am i really saving anything by purchasing this cheaper and possibly inferior product
