quality part

Comments about MOOG Ball Joint:

I was looking for a quality part at a good price. this moog ball joint fits the bill. it went on easily and has provided a smooth noise free ride. while there are less expensive ball joints both at advanced auto and at other auto parts stores the moog name is worth the extra cost.
the life time warranty is a plus and there is never a hassle returning or exchanging at advanced auto.
I have been an advanced auto customer for years and have never felt the need to go elsewhere.
I think it is important to go with quality on the parts you buy and where you buy them.

    Comments about MOOG Ball Joint:

    They looked heavy duty and good quality out of the box and installed easily, but when I checked them after a week of use, they were leaking grease. These are the sealed units, so no grease should be coming out, and it was coming from what appeared to be a pinhole in the side of both rubber boots, not from the top of the boot where it's designed to allow leakage. I called moog and they said the boots were probably defective, but I don't feel like taking them out and putting another set in. I'll probably only have the car one more year, and the joints should last that long, even with the leak. oh well.

      Comments about MOOG Ball Joint:

      This is a well made part. was hoping for a USA-made part, but no luck. It comes with all the needed parts for a good installation. Installation of the part requires a press and the various adapters to do the job. Beating it into place is not a good idea. Moog Ball Joint Part No K9643 is the correct part for the 1991 Honda Accord.

          Many of you will buy the cheap ball joint, get frustrated and come back and buy this one in the end. Just buy it now, first thing. Excellent fit and performance.

              • Q:

                Is this ball joint slightly oversize? Ran into this before where the ball joint was replaced with a larger one and OEM original would not work as replacement.

                  A:

                  I'm happy to help, Cloudy! This ball joint is not considered an oversized ball joint. It may be oversized for specific applications, however. MOOG does have offset ball joints available for the vehicles that this is specified to fit. To find out more specific application information, please provide your vehicle's year, make, model and engine size.
