Welcome to the forum, I believe you will need 5 posts before you can post on other sections.

Welcome to the forum purplejeeper;

Which power-train does your '06 Limited have and which 4WD system?

How many miles are on it?

Creek is correct; you need to reach 5 posts before you can post in the other sub-forums.

Again, welcome aboard.

My Commander has 147xxx miles, still feels strong. I recently changed the lower ball joints, I ordered some Moog Lowers and adj. Uppers, but my question was regarding the lowers, they didn't seem to sit all the way down and I'm still seeing a bit of the stud. I was wondering if anyone else has seen this and if its ok?

So you basically have the same set-up as me - other than you have an 06 Limited and I have an 08 Sport.

I have not heard of this lower ball joint issue before - but, it certainly doesn't sound normal.

Have you tried calling Moog directly and speaking to one of their Techs?
