  • Belleville washer preload provides lower torque and stud articulation with minimal axial clearance.

      Comments about Moog Ball Joint:

      Have bought cheaper products in the past only to have to repeat the repair later- Save yourself the time, cost and aggravation- get MOOG the first time!
      From the time you take it out of the box, you can tell it's a quality part.

          Comments about Moog Ball Joint:

          Purchased two of these for my 1500 truck. My truck eats ball joints. This is the third time in the trucks 10 years on the road I have had to replace the ball joints. Advance has the heavy duty ball joint tool for loan as well. So it was a one stop deal. I use antisieze on the ball joint so when I have to take them out in about four years they won't be stuck in the control arm. These (unlike the ones I replaced) have a Lifetime Warranty. So the only thing that is keeping me from giving it 5 stars is if Advance takes them back without hassle when my truck eats these up. If so then it is totally worth it.

                Comments about Moog Ball Joint:

                The part being reviewed here is the Moog "Problem Solver" and it is just that for my truck a Dodge Big Horn.
                Dodges are notorious for deficient ball joints that they refuse to correct for some reason.
                One big problem with the OEM part is that that it is not lubable and wears way too quickly.
                Mine went at less that 68,000 miles.
                The problem that this part corrects is that it IS lubeable. This is good for two reasons both due to the lube port.
                1. The obvious it allows you to lube the balljoint where as the OEM does not.
                2. This same port also allows any contaniments that get into the boot to get out lessening wear on the ball joint.
                Not to mention there is a life time warrenty on this product though you shoud never need to use it.

                  you cannot replace it yourself. Need professional mechanic to replace it.The tie rod has to be disconnected from spindle.Couldn't get it to come out. The original part has tabs on them that have to be cut off with hammer & chisel before they can be pressed out of spindle. This is not a job for a weekend mechanic. Believe me,i do most of my minor repairs,but this is a job for a professional !

                  Use a service manual to help you replace these parts. The 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab 2WD SLT had the factory lower ball joints pressed in and press fitted on the back side. Grind the back side off ball joint. Press this out with a 3 legged bearing puller. You may need to hit the puller with a hammer. Go to Advance and get help pressing new ones in.

                        I would recommend to do the installation with the help of your local mechanic, It includes mounting hardware and ball joint boots that prevent contamination and allow debris to be flushed out when the ball joint is serviced.
