|Leeroy||you also need to grease them up, if you dont they will rust|

You're the second person to mention this issue as well.

Just have to send these back for replacements. First time I've ever had issue with Moog. To be clear, this isn't Rock Auto's fault. I guess I either got a bad batch or from the look of some of the boxes being opened and missing plastic bagging that they were returns or something misplaced. Glad I found out and was able to go over everything else within the order to make sure before I started wrenching away for nothing.

|Leeroy||return them. when i did my coils i got some end links. they were easy to move little to no pressure, which is not normal. they should be stiff. they also send me the wrong grease things that screw on, be careful with those. play it safe and get a different set.|

|Bitter||I can't say I've ran into that, were they all of the same design? Moog has rolled out a new 'internal' boot for some parts which have had issues with boot failures, they look weird but they work better. I've not ran into a freely spinning moog part. However, were they K or RK series moog? RK is more or less the same as any other part, K is the problem solver line which is the 'real' moog.|

|Eclipse-GT||Checked through the rest of my Moog suspension parts order from RockAuto and also noticed my front right side end link has the same problem. It spins ridiculously easy compared to the left side which is very stiff like it should be. Most of the Moog boxes packed inside the main shipping box from RockAuto were opened and reclosed as well. Some in the plastic they come shipped in while others were not. Ironically enough the ones in plastic were the ones messed up while the ones not were ok. No idea but pretty sure these parts should all be very stiff and hard to move when new. I mean after all if you can move them freely that is when they're usually replaced so I set up a return on the defective parts for replacements. Sucks to be put behind schedule but what can ya do.|

Rear endlinks question
So I just ordered new rear endlinks, went with Moog of course. Got them out of the boxes and they're already greased and ready to go. Just have to insert the grease fittings which seem to be self tapping because they do not screw in easily. Not a big deal. What is a question of concern though is that one endlink is very solid as in I cannot freely move it. I believe, through years of replacing them, that this is considered normal and that they should be pretty stiff because opposite is bad. Well one is able to be moved freely, way too freely as I can spin both ends freely in all directions with ease. I'm guessing one is defective? It is definitely new but this makes me question using it or returning it to RockAuto. Thoughts?
