Just got back from going to six ORLYs. This is silly.
I am looking at the ball joint that is not a colossal piece of crap and it and the box it comes in both state "Made In Japan". This unit also comes inside a clear plastic bag with a paper...
MADE IN JAPAN
The other MOOG BJs, that are not properly fitting are "Hecho en Mexico".
Not if it is 'Asia-Spec' but that it is made in Japan vs "Hecho'd".
The boxes have slightly different writing on the label as well.
All use the same UPC -0-80066-40403-5
There is a number under the UPC that is different for each box type.
"MOOG- Hecho en Mexico" has 1513065-P
"MOOG- Hecho en Mexico, ASIA-SPEC
" has 1513113-P
"MOOG- Made in Japan, ASIA-SPEC
" has 1512361-P
I don't know if this supposed to be a SKU or date coding.
Googled "51220-SM1-A01" and found this http://www.hondapartsnow.com/genuine...0-SM1-A01.html
