Check Vehicle Fit

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:
  • The OE ball joint is designed with an elliptical stud opening. Failure to properly align the ball joint in the control arm during installation could result in loss of vehicle control due to ball joint failure. MOOG® instruction sheets contain specific information about press in ball joint orientation, where applicable.
  • 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.

Comments about MOOG Ball Joint:

Most shops replace the entire control arm at considerably more expense and the ball joints are not greasable. To save my customer some money, I installed what I would consider the best ball joint. I used a ball joint press tool to remove and install them without a problem with the arm still on the car.

As mentioned, you do have to pay attention to the orientation of the ball joint, but you only need to line up the hole in the new part to the dimple on the arm. It should have the ball joint swinging back & forth toward/away from you when facing the arm.

Installing the boot ring is a challenge, but not too bad. Here is what I did and I hope this helps. After the snap ring is installed, take the boot ring and slide it all the way up against the snap ring first. Take a small pocket screw driver and angle it in the dimple where the ring will go. Use a straight pick tool and slide the ring down to get the blade of the screw driver under it. Once the screwdriver is under it, now put on the boot. pull the ring out over the boot lip and slowly turn the boot while using the screwdriver to keep the ring pried out. Eventually, the ring drops in the boot groove all the way around.

Great part and will always use Moog ball joints in my customer's and personal vehicles.

      Comments about MOOG Ball Joint:

      Pressed out the old upper ball joints (95 Honda Accord) and pressed in the new Moogs using a hydraulic press. The old ball joints were original components, but they came out with no fuss.
      You should note the orientation of the old joints, as a joint's post swivels in a specific line (perpendicular to the car). Also, there is a dimple on the Moog ball joint for alignment with the corresponding dimple on the arm.
      The provided spring ring intended to hold the dust boot in place was a bit tricky, but other means could be used if you don't have the patience to make it work.
