Upper Ball Joints - Advice on MOOG K90255

As I will be sorting out the LBJ's soon, i'm sure my UBJ's are toast too and at 230k, they will need replacement too. As i'm shopping around looking for a good brand, I found MOOG's attractive price at $25 a piece (Amazon) and i'm curious if they are good enough quality for a daily driver (reviews are mixed at 4.5 stars). OEM's are nice too at $45 a piece but I would like to not spend much money on uppers as it's not a crucial part like the lowers. Any advice and opinions would be appreciated. Thanks!

For the extra $20 each, it's worth going with OEM.

Here's one way on how to do it. Some guys do the press work with the knuckle still on the rig. I decided to pull mine all the way off.

Ok OEM it is. I had mixed feeling about running the upper MOOG's but OEM will be much better. Thanks for the advice.

I had zero luck with Moog ball joints in the front D60 on my Dodge Ram with the cummins.

OEM for 200+ miles or else be ready to replace ball joints every 20K miles if aftermarket.
