I had the XRF in my 2007 3500, they only lasted a year at best, I then went moog, they only lasted 1.5 years, I then went Carli and they lasted 3 years and were still new, I since sold the truck. I will only go Carli when I change them on my 2017.

I have over 120k on XRFs on my second gen and they are still good, truck has had a plow on it for 12 years. Have a set for the 07, has at least 50k on whatever brand is in there now (came with truck) and both lowers are worn.

I can't ever see myself paying the price of Carlis, as good as they are.

I wore out the last set of moog ball joints in 16k. My truck has about 175k on it. My mechanic wants to try the XRF brand and if they go quick also he will give me a deal on a re-installation of better quality BJ's. A lifetime warranty doesn't have much value when you have to pay labor for installation.

Wouldnt bother with xrf. Get EMF, dynatrac or carli. Only 3 options imo.

Those who are having such a short lifespan on ball joints, are you measuring axial and radial play with a dial indicator? Since 2000 model year, there is a wear spec. A certain amount of play is normal and acceptable. I'm not sure if some shops actually aren't aware of this, or are trying to scam some extra work by showing the customer how "worn" their ball joints are.
