    OEM...there's no need to upgrade them. Despite what you may read, the Moog ones suck.

    Yep. Oem all the way. There are actually a lot of upgrade parts that are a downgrade on the suspension for our cars.

    Went Oem for front and back. Does not disappoint

    Not sure the hate for the moog ones. I have put the problem solvers on my last two cars including my 3. They are much thicker and currently have over 100k on them.

    OEM are sealed...no maintenance necessary. Moog's you need to keep up on greasing them or they'll get filled with crud and the fitment isn't great. The thickness will have absolutely no effect on performance.
