    Last year, I replaced all four ball joints on my 2003 (along with new uppers from JBA). The other day I noticed that the rubber boot on one of the lowers was cut open. The local Napa is quoting $60 for their valueline brand and $80 for their higher end one. Amazon has ACDelco, Diften, Proforged, Detroit axel for less. Would I be getting anything out of going with the Napa, or are the brands on Amazon quality?

    Buy Moog. RockAuto had them the cheapest last time I looked.

    Go Moog if you can. Delco is also a good option. Be wary of buying online, especially if you want lifetime warranties on the parts. Not all manufacturers will warranty their parts unless bought through authorized vendors. It may be cheap, but in the long run it can cost you.
