Default Ball joints

Wondering what ball joints everyone has had the best of luck with. I can get Dana Spicer. But with so many brands available, I don't want something that doesn't last.

I think OE Spicer last longer then Moogs.

Seems "most" OE ball joints will last 50-100k. We install Moogs and honor the lifetime warranty. Seems we warranty them close to 20-30k or less.

Of coarse that is a broad statement. If you give specific application and usage, would probably get a less broad statement

I have good luck with Napa gold. Like the price and the warranty.
