Moog vs Kyb strut mounts

The replacement type. $60 for the KYB steel mounts and $93 for the Moog steel mounts. As seen here

What have you guys used? Do you guys know where they are manufactured? I'm all about saving money but the phrase you get what you pay for comes to mind.

I bought Napa Chassis. I changed them the same time I replaced my struts and springs so I cannot tell you what difference they made, but my old ones were starting to tear and the newer ones were much more firm. Seem to be of good quality, I'm happy with them. I think they were $86 each....? Somewhere in that range.

hmm, those are sold per, so double the price.
Moogs I would guess are stock style, but the KYB's look like a spherical bearing style... but they're cheaper...? Maybe the moogs are sold as a pair and the KYB's are per?
Either way, look at these

**KEYNOTE** - Lifetime warantee. Check other threads about spherical bearing strut mounts, apparently a very nice upgrade. I'm going for these soon.

i have the strut mounts from hotpart, i was very impressed with them and i would recommend them as a good replacement. the only thing i do not like is that the plate can sit over an inch off the strut tower and there is a gap for all the road crape to come through. but other than that i though the quality was good

I looked the Napa Chassis ones up. Same price as the Moog ones.

I think all three are the same type of mount. Except KYBs are rather cheap. I have no need for the hotpart style ones but I'll keep them in mind.
