    What is the big difference besides price between these three pitman arms besides price. One is a Moog for $83, another is McQuay-Norris 4-grove spline $52 and the other is a McQuay-Norris extreme series 4-grove spline for $69. Wich one would you get?

    I know Moog and their quality, never heard of McQuay-Norris before, I'd probably spend the extra money for the Moog. Any of them have any warranty? That would probably help in my decision.

    Highlights

    McQuay-Norris Extreme Ball Joints
    I used to work for a parts store that sold these, they are much higher quality than a strandard McQuay Norris joint, which isn't saying much.

    A lot of McQuay Norris parts arn't actually made by them, Iv'e seen two boxs same part number with two diffrent manufactures products inside.

    I still bought Moog over all other options. I think Summit Racing has good prices on Moog. Moog in my opinion is the best option.

    x2, I've always had good luck with Moog. I dont get it from Summit though, Napa and Carquest's premium bj/tre product line is made by Moog.

    spicer golds were far nicer then the moog stuff

    Now does it matter if it's lifter or not? And all the prices were from checker.

    Yes it could matter if it's lifted, depending on the type Pitman arm used on the lift.
    Some lifts use the factory pitman arm, I'm not a fan of this because it makes bad bump steer and some lifts will use a Pitman arm with drop to match the lift height. You need to determine which one your truck is using because the wrong one could cause issues.
