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 lower 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.

          Bought a used van, it needed new ball-joints, these were the only ones that I could find that were USA made.
          Put them in, great product, fixed the slight sway in the van and now we are ready for some good camping.

            Comments about MOOG Ball Joint:

            These moog balljoints where made in USA, a hard thing to find in todays global MFG.I used Moog 30 years ago and the current quailty for these truck parts were good. I dont know about other applications.They DO have to be pressed in and you can get the press kit from Advance Auto to use for no charge which is helpful. I would not recommend a novice car weekend mechanic or unskilled mechanic to do this without help from someone who is experienced, always wear protective gear like safty glasses when working with air tools and this balljoint press.The only thing I was not real happy about was the fit of the grease boot. It would not totally fit over the lip on the balljoint but it was held in place after installed on the vehicle. Moog for this application is of good quality, but I would like to see Advance Auto offer OEM parts as well so you have the choice if you want to pay for them as they will be higher in price but also quality
