New Moog Problem Solver Ball Joint for Compression-Loaded Suspension Systems

Federal-Mogul Motorparts has added an innovative, high-strength replacement load-carrying ball joint for a broad range of late-model vehicles equipped with compression-loaded suspension systems to its Moog brand steering and suspension line. The company says the exclusive new Moog Problem Solver ball joint is visually different from conventional ball joints as a result of its pre-installed patent-pending, low-profile integral dust boot with encapsulated Belleville washer design. This next-generation boot helps technicians save time in the repair bay while providing a significantly larger contact area against the ball stud, ensuring a more robust and effective seal. The new ball joint features a hardened ball stud that withstands higher loads. Other features are a premium forged housing with an increased cross-section having up to 52% more material in key areas and a patent-pending hardened steel bearing sleeve with powered-metal gusher bearing to provide controlled axial and radial movement.
