I guess you'd call it "tweaking" for the 2000 and later model years... the upper BJs are riveted to the control arm, and the 3 rivets have to be ground down and punched out (or drilled and chiseled). Then the new Moogs will bolt onto the control arm in the rivet holes. On a 4x4, the lowers are pressed in, and have to be pressed out. On a 2wd, the lowers are riveted (4 rivets instead of 3). Moog part number for uppers is K7242 and can be used on all years, 4x4 and 2wd. Lowers have different P/Ns, depending on 4x4 or 2wd. Rock Auto has good prices... approx $44 each.
