I put Moog problem solver upper ball joints on my Burb in October 2018. Last year the upper control arm bushings were plenty worn out, so I got new complete upper control arms from O'Reilly's, Precision brand, and had them installed. The Moog BJs were still good and tight, no slop at all, so I kept the arm assemblies for spares. Eventually I will change the bushings, I think the holes are still good.The problem solver arm is even, IMO, reasonably priced.
Moog was all my dad ever used for front end parts, unless he couldn't get them. But I have used other brands, like Perfect Circle/Spicer tie rods and ball joints on my '90 square Burb, because that's what I had available. That truck got a grease job every oil change (the square 2500/3500 trucks had greaseable steel control arm bushings so that was 8 extra fittings to get). That probably helped the parts last; that truck was still handling and steering well till we quit driving it.
