moog ball joints

I am looking to buy ball joints for my car and there are two brands. The cheaper one is "moog"... anyone know if these are good or better than the other? Sometimes the cheaper items are really better in quality than the more expensive ones.. so I am asking

To the best of my knowledge, Moog makes pretty good stuff.
Not sure about MB parts, but I know for my GM, they sometimes tend to improve on a mediocre OEM design.

they are junk, they squeak in 10k miles...mine do. Buy the more expensive ones, like febi, or Lemforder or something like that.

Federal Mogal is one of the largest European parts manufacturer/distributor. They own the Moog name, sometimes they are OE but many times they are aftermarket!! They supply parts from Spain, Turkey, Italy, and the rest of the world as well.
Spend a few more $$$ and get the OE part from Lemfoerder.
FEBI is also just a re-packager & they don't make the parts they sell under their name.
