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® 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.

The ball joint was exactly what my 2003 Honda Civic needed. I see so many poor reviews about this ball joint and I don't understand why, if you read the information that comes with the ball joint it clearly states do not use the zerk fitting if space does not allow, which is why is supplies a metal cap for the grease fitting opening. For my vehicle I had to remove the whole steering knuckle and press it in with a ball joint press I already owned. You need to take care in doing this however or you could damage the ball joint or the knuckle. Also make sure that when you press in the ball joint you make sure the "inboard" portion of the ball joint is in the correct spot.

I'm pretty used to moog products being some of the best stuff out there, but the reality of this product is that the grease fitting makes it almost impossible to put the vehicle back together after install the ball joint, and pretty much impossible to ever actually grease. I'd just assume have no grease fitting at all and be able to install the thing.

Comments about MOOG Ball Joint:

I went ahead and replaced the ball joints since I had everything apart for bearings... I was worried about the grease fitting not clearing the axle but it does. crank it down and it'll clear. I rented the ball joint press and it was easy. 2002 civic lx coupe

            Recommended as an exact fit but due to the grease fitting I could not fully install the CV axle....would not go beyond the abs teeth. Will be returning tomorrow.. DO NOT BUY!

              The cv axle will not fit into the wheel hub with the grease fitting attacted to the ball joint. The ABS ring on the axle collides with the fitting when replacing the hub assembly. Only options are to return the parts or drive with no grease fitting in the ball joint. Find a replacement that does not have a grease fitting on it.

                Grease zerk that came with it would not clear abs teeth, so I used one I had in the tool cabinet and it cleared just fine. You could probaly also grind the zerk down the little bit you need to clear it. Also you definately need a press to put these in. The OEM Honda ball joint was a smooth press in fit. Unliike the pic they show, the Moog has serated edges to help lock it in place. Happy with Moog in the past this seems like a quality product, lets see if it lasts 145K like the OEM part did.

                  ABS Teeth attached to Axle leave no room for Ball Joint Grease Zerk, if you try to force it you will cut into the ABS sensor teeth and likely destroy both ABS axle teeth and Grease Zerk.

                  Installed it myself on my Honda Civic and it works well. With online discounts the price was about the same as the cheaper Chinese stuff. Moog is manufactured in Japan!
