Apparently the Moog numbers have been discontinued. I bought a pair of lower BJs on eBay for less than ONE from Rare Parts as a precaution.

These parts are drying up and getting expensive.

I did the same thing late last year while I had the chance. I haven't been in critical need of them, the used replacements are still holding; but I did not want to take a chance of being without should they eventually fail, and E-Bay had an offer I just couldn't refuse, just over $110 for a pair. They look great, the same engineering I had been seeing since the '90s which is nothing but an improvement over the OE joints. Also came with mounting hardware...but no instructions. One jog of memory I need: What is the torque limit to the mounting bolts/nuts? Obviously, the shop manual will not have that; heck, it states to toss the entire lower control arm in the event of ball-joint failure.
