    Default z71 idler and pitman

    I just replaced both about 10k ago and now they're bad. Don't really understand why since all I do is drive it back and forth to work and haul a few light loads once in a while. Is this a common problem? Is there upgrades for them?

    I only use Moog replacement suspension parts. Most moog parts are lifetime warranty. I have never had an issue with their parts going bad.
