Default Ball joint question....

Hi everyone,
I'm currently building a 90 civic hatch restoring everything on this one I got pretty much everything ready to go but I'm looking for a set of ball joints. I did a lot of searching and I'm thinking of getting a set of xrf ball joints...

What do you guys think??

Xrf good or bad??

I like Honda gen, but many have had great success with moog (as stated).

I see most everyone goes with moog.
Maybe I'll try out the ray's good price at Carquest.

I asked about xrf cuz I read about them on off roading and diesel truck forums and they mostly have good reviews... The guy that started that company used to be a higher up at moog... Tho idk

I'll throw a +1 @ Raybestos.

That's what we use for the Tape-R.

Raybestos and Moog both rebox China/Twain made parts, just keep an eye on them and if they develop any play warranty them right away.

BTW: OEM Honda ball joints can fail straight out of the box just like any other joint. And to warranty them you have to let a dealer remove it. Napa sells a brand called "Altrom Imports" which are just reboxed Sankei 555 (a Honda OEM) but yu wont have to mess with the warranty BS Honda makes you do
