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.

        Costs more but lasts longer... I replaced all four ball joints even though only one was bad; I can definitely notice the improvement. Well worth the few extra dollars and time to do it right, and do it only once!

                Comments about Moog Ball Joint:

                MOOG ball joints are the best there are...they come with greasable zerk fittings. This one was part of a complete ball joint / U-joint job on a 2003 F350 SD Crew Cab 4X4 dually...not a job for a rookie. The parts fit perfectly as expected, and will be expected to perform perfectly probably for the remainder of the life of the vehicle. Moog U-joints and Federal Bearing seals and bearings were also used on the rest of the job. This was a job where it was worth paying a few extra bucks for the best quality parts.

                      • Q:

                        how do i tell the difference between a Moog ball joint and a OEM ball joint
                        Asked on 9/30/2012 by AS from Connecticut

                        • CUSTOMER CARE

                          A:

                          The non-serviceable socket design cannot flush contaminants from the assembly, causing corrosion and wear. But the serviceable MOOG socket design allows new lubricant to flush contaminants away from the bearing/full-ball metal stud assembly. The boot deterioration/failure can lead to lubrication loss. The bearing quickly wears, resulting in excessive deflection, imprecise steering/alignment and possible assembly separation. The plastic bearings do not uniformly transmit force into the wall of the housing and cover plate, causing deformation and wear. This affects steering stability and results in shorter service life. But the hardened, powdered-metal gusher Moog bearings are not prone to the excessive wear that plastic bearings suffer under unfavorable conditions.
                          The Moog is having powdered-metal bearing construction which withstands higher psi loads without deformation. The MOOG bearings fit tightly against the housing, allowing them to transfer vehicle loads to the housing. This diminishes load forces and reduces stress. For any further assistance, please feel free to call us at 1-877-238-2623 or visit your nearest Advance Auto Parts store and our representatives would be more than happy to assist you.

                      • Q:

                        Why is this ball joint listed as a 'Problem solver'? What is different than other ball joints?
                        Thanks. Jim

                      • Q:

                        I took my truck for an alignment and the repair facility informed me that after "x" amount of play/movemant in the ball joints, they have to be replaced before an alignment can be done. Do I need Upper and Lower? Both sides? Are Moog any better, really, than the rest?

                        • A:

                          Moog is the best. Yes, if you have to take it apart, do both upper and lowers. A LOT of work involved. Check around for prices. My Ford dealer was actually cheaper than anyone else at $525 plus parts. Do not use Ford Joints...no grease fitting, and get 90 degree fittings for the top ball joints..IF you want to get grease into them. This is from the Ford mechanic.
