    I use S&S tire when I get tires on my truck and get very good service and no BS. Have had good experiences with Discount as well.

    The torture we put on tires and travel we all do I think Les is the choice.....consistent killer service and will rescue your ass when in need and almost anywhere.

    Les Schwab can take it:indabutt:. They won't deal on price at all and they knifed a tire that I owned before giving it back to me. They were also the wonderful folks who f'd up putting a tire/wheel on my cousins rig which promptly flew off said rig while towing a boat. That was fun!...NOT. Discount will do everything schwab will (free fixes on flats that aren't even theirs, etc) and have proven to go above and beyond for me so far. Add to that their price beating on anything you can find and I don't think you can go wrong. My .02

    Got a new set of ball joints installed at Les Schwab four years ago and service was ok. Nine months later the cheapo Chinese ball joints they installed failed and they refused to honor the warranty because I have 35” tires. I put Moogs on myself and have had zero problems since.

    I have problems will all aftermarket crap to some extent. Moog, TRW, AC DElco, and don't even get me started about MEVO-TEC.. NEVER use mevo etc except in an emergency.
    All fords get OE ball joints from the dealer.
    For what its worth....Centric brake parts are good. If you ever need a steering gear, RedHead steering gears are the only ones I will install.

    Moog and AC Delco parts been fine for me. I also installed a RedHead steering box in my Suburban. After the first one leaked (provided video), they replaced it. The second one has been fine. Also put one in my son’s Suburban and it has been good. However, I do know of an experienced mech who has had nothing but problems with his RedHead and he’s saying never again.

    He had issues from the get go with steering being harder in one direction. They told him he could send it back, but he never did. Here’s his (Fermanator) original thread on redoing his front end. BTW this guy did his own conversion from 6.5 diesel to a Duramax.

    I have had great experience with two RedHead steering boxes so far.

    Big T, aftermarket is a necessary evil and Moog and AC are probably LEAST likely to piss me off. Thanks for the heads up on Redhead problems, I've probably put 20 of them in, in the last couple years. Never had a leak problem. Only one that had the slightest bit of play that wasn't supposed to be there and one minor fitment issue for a modified Dodge 3500. I've refused to install Ford "remanufacted" boxes from Ford, to much play.....been doing a lot of electric steering racks lately...fun...

    Here’s the video of the RedHead steering box leaking after installing on my son’s Suburban:



    They replaced it and the next unit has worked fine since. Granted I had to do the install twice.
