Federal-Mogul Corp. announced that it has expanded its Moog Steering and Suspension coverage of late-model Asian, European and domestic passenger vehicle applications with several new control arms, complete strut assemblies and other precision-engineered parts.

New parts now available through Moog distributors are rear upper-right (P/N RK641420) and left (RK641421) control arms for 2010-2014 Mercedes-Benz ES350 and ES550 and 2012-2013 C250, C300, C350 and CLS550 models.
