I know the Moog LBJs cost 2x what the Mevotechs cost, but when the ball separates from the cup, the wheel basically has no suspension attached to it except the upper BJ and the corner collapses.
    I appreciate the advice. FWIW, I've heard pretty iffy reviews on Moog parts lately.

    Same. I replaced the questionable LBJs with Moog units and the manufacturing between the two different brands was night and day. Be aware that Moog uses a nylon locknut instead of a castellated nut, which didn't bother me, but I know some are apprehensive about it.

    I'll have to have a look at my OEM ones when I pull them off to compare. The Mevotechs had zerk fittings, which could be nice, I guess.

    I got a Simpson Hybrid S. It's a head an neck restraint. It's unique in that it is also tested and rated to work with OE 3 point seatbelts as well as my 6 point harness. It's a LOT of peace of mind when I'm riding in student vehicles that normally only have stock safety equipment. It's a big deal to me.

    I spent an hour or so messing with the idle settings on my mspnp. It seems like I have things idling well in open loop with the ac on and all the electrical load I can throw at it, but it still seems less than smooth with the ac off and idles about a hundred rpm lower than I’d like it to (about 750) without the extra load from the ac. I can’t for the life of me find an idle target setting in tunerstudio, so it looks like I have a lot of googling to do tomorrow while the rain washes the carvfor me
