MOOG Problem Solver products incorporate proven design and engineering features to ensure like new steering, ease of installation and longer life. MOOG is the preferred steering and suspension parts brand of professional technicians and NASCAR Crew Chiefs.

Product Features:
  • Problem Solver® powdered metal gusher bearing design enables grease to flow through the bearing to the stud for reduced friction and enhanced strength and stability.
  • Problem Solver® patented cover plate design allows for tighter tolerances vs traditional cover plate designs, providing a more durable and extended life part.
  • Exclusive cover plate protects against contaminants leaking into the bearing surface.
  • MOOG® engineered steel composition results in a stronger component. Full ball metal stud provides 360 degrees of smooth, consistent, rotational movement resulting in more responsive steering.
  • An enlarged ball joint receptacle in the control arm can cause a loose ball joint fit. MOOG® Problem Solver® design includes an oversized housing for a more secure fit.
  • Greaseable socket design allows new lubricant to flush contaminants from the assembly, reducing corrosion and wear.

    Comments about MOOG Ball Joint:

    Appears to be a good design and the grease fitting is a great feature the OEM left out. Only downside was the threaded shaft bent on one of the ball joints while installing. Advance Auto said it wasn't covered under the lifetime warranty because it wasn't in use yet -- still not so sure it should have bent using normal installation hand tools. Had to buy another one to replace the damaged one. :( Other than that, the product seems to be a great improvement. Hopefully they hold up well now that they are installed.

            • Q:

              I have a 2005 Mercury mountaineer 4.0l v6. The Haynes manual says that if the ball joint needs replacing, to replace the upper control arm assembly. What's best just the ball joint or the complete assembly.

              Thanks mike
