i've used/seen the moog used without any problems in my small sample. and they seem robust enough - although the rubber boot seems rather weak, i wasn't a fan of the last one i bought (not sure they're like this for all units models?) - it was just a "flap", it wasn't firmly connected or anything, just lift it up with your finger nail and there was the grease and joint...no wonder it needed a grease fitting!?!?!?!?? LOL i have one on my car and it seemed well constructed minus that silly flap of a boot...doesn't seem robust for long term usage in the salt, mud, grease, putting my boat in the water, offroad, snow, salt...but we'll see, it's easy enough to replace. next time I'll probably go OEM or look into Beck Arnley as sometimes their stuff is OEM.
newer generation Subaru end links seem to fail often compared to the past few decades of low maintenance Subaru suspension....???
i've been wondering this. i'm not sure "greaseable" joints means much by itself. plenty of higher maintenance cars (american usually i think) have greaseable parts that don't have near the life expectancy of the same Subaru part. the low life span of some ball joints, tie rod ends, ujoints on other vehicles surprises me compared to the more robust Subaru components which is just about all i work on.
