MOOG Introduces High-Strength Ball Joint For Compression-Loaded Suspension Systems

Exclusive "Problem Solver" design features premium forged housing and patent-pending, pre-installed dust boot for exceptional durability and faster installation, according to Federal-Mogul Motorparts.

MOOG - Ball JointFederal-Mogul Motorparts’ MOOG Steering and Suspension brand has introduced a high-strength replacement load-carrying ball joint for a broad range of late-model vehicles equipped with compression-loaded suspension systems. The company says this exclusive new MOOG Problem Solver ball joint is visually different from conventional ball joints as a result of its pre-installed patent-pending, low-profile integral dust boot with encapsulated Belleville washer design. This next-generation boot helps technicians save time in the repair bay while providing a significantly larger contact area against the ball stud, ensuring a more robust and effective seal.

“Technicians will immediately notice the difference in this premium Problem Solver part when they open the box,” said Bryon Osterland, general manager, global steering and suspension, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “Virtually every aspect of the design represents a significant enhancement in ball joint technology. The premium forged housing is more robust, the part offers superior stud motion right out of the box, and the low-profile, integral boot sets a new standard for performance and time-saving convenience.”

According to Federal-Mogul Motorparts, the part is engineered for superior strength and durability; the new ball joint features a hardened ball stud that withstands higher loads, a premium forged housing with an increased cross-section having up to 52 percent more material in key areas and a patent-pending hardened steel bearing sleeve with powered-metal gusher bearing to provide controlled axial and radial movement. The preinstalled, integral dust boot is manufactured from stronger material, as well, to ensure superior durability and service life, the company says.  Also included is a pre-tapped grease fitting hole for easy installation of a threaded grease fitting.
