When I did my wifes car they were about $30. I just checked and the TRW'* still are the same price $28.88 and are greaseable but I see they have a $16.46 one that isn't greaseable; I bet someone switched them if it really is a sealed one.

They are absolutely NOT better. They dry up and then fail with no easy way to grease them. Grease-able ones can be greased and as such, will last longer as long as they are maintained/greased. Sealed ones can't be self greasing as there'* no way for them to get more grease...

BoneZ, that is my thought exactly.

I'm not too worried as it'* a TRW and should last for as long as I decide to own the car. I did not want to go with the "TreadSaver" brand because I trust TRW much more.
