Very easy to install
Came via ups 4 days earlier than expected with no shipping whatsoever. Very easy to pay. Very easy to track. The how to videos helped tremendously. Parts were a perfect fit for my 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. My first experience buying from 1AAuto was a very successful one!

96 Grand Cherokee
I checked around for best prices but found that the low priced parts were ( Made in China ) so I backed away. I really dont like products made in china, they are a waste of money because they fail way too soon. The prices from the 1A Auto were brand name "Moog" and at a very competitive price. They right fit and fast shipping. I am very happy !

Will this fit my car? Add a vehicle to make sure
Customer Q&A
Ask a question to 1A Auto customers who purchased the product
What is the actual brand of the parts?
Lucas G February 5, 2017
We have a few different aftermarket companies build these parts specifically for us, as our 1A Auto house brand. They are manufactured to the same OEM specifications as the original part that came with your vehicle. If you have any further questions, please dont hesitate to ask.
Tim K February 5, 2017
It says set of 8, but it comes in a 6 piece set? Are there no upper ball joints that come with this set? So you only get half of the ball joints when you replace most of everything else??
Shane R August 15, 2017
These will not include the upper ball joints. There should be other kits available which may include those upper ball joints too.
Alex P August 15, 2017
That is correct no upper ball joints.
Gregory E August 16, 2017
Usually... only the lower ball joints wear out because they take the most pressure and abuse. Especially during high speed turns and off road terrain stress.
Coyne A August 17, 2017
Does this kit fit the 1998 5.9 Grand Cherokee?
Brandon W September 25, 2017
Yes, these will fit.
Alex P September 25, 2017
Does it specify right and left side for the parts?
Jake S November 18, 2017
I dont remember if the instructions specified, but it doesnt matter which side the hubs go on and you will know which side is which when you pull out the old axles. It was very easy. Just remember to use liquid wrench for the axle nuts and possibly a cheater bar.
Austin D November 19, 2017
The parts are identical for installation on either side. They are non-rotational specific.
Allan T November 19, 2017
These parts may be used on either side and are interchangeable.
Alex P November 21, 2017
Does the kit come with extra cotter pins for the tie rod and axels nut? Seeing as you have to remove them to do the job.
Jake S November 19, 2017
splines as well as some lube around the inside of the hub housings to ensure the ease of removing the axles again if needed.
Allan T November 19, 2017
Thank you for your question, but it does not come with additional hardware.
Tim K November 20, 2017
I have a 1995 jeep grand cherokee laredo 4x4 4.0 engine with universal joint style axles in front will the kit work on my jeep so I can switch to the cv joint style axle ?
Juston L November 29, 2017
Thanks for your question! This kit is not meant to change the vehicle over to the CV style axles. Usually there are more changes necessary to allow these items to work on non-CV style axles. You may be able to find more info on doing this swap on an owners or enthusiast forum. Thank you!
