Ok, went to have the truck alighned and was told pittman arm and idler arm are to far gone to do a proper alignment. Guy wanted close to $500 to change both. Had pittman arm changed less then two years ago at a local mom and pop shop and he charged $90 labor and I brought him the part. It wasnt a Moog part but it wasnt a $20 part from Auto Zone. Anyway, I can do it myself just wondering if I should go with Moog or some other brand? What about a full kit with tie rod ends, ball joints and idler,pittman arms? Anyone have any suggestions?

I would reccomend teh MOOG pieces, and I would replace the pitman, idler arm, and idler arm bracket assembly with the good MOOG pieces. I have had to replace ALOT of the non moog pieces here lately with less than 30K miles on them. The new ones are china built and are crap.
