New MOOG lower ball joints for Lexus

June 9, 2011

Federal-Mogul Corp. says its MOOG steering and suspension brand is the first in the automotive replacement parts market to offer lower ball joints for a variety of late-model Lexus GS and IS models.

The new MOOG lower ball joints (K500123, right; K500124, left) provide good component performance and durability, the company notes. The parts cover 350,000 rear-wheel-drive Lexus vehicles, including 2006 GS 300; 2006-2007 GS 430; 2007-2010 GS 350; 2008-2010 GS 450H and GS 460; 2006-2010 IS 350 and IS 250; 2008-2010 IS F; and 2010 IS 250C and IS 350C models.

The ball joints feature the brand’s powdered metal upper and lower bearings for strength, performance and longer life. The new MOOG ball joints also feature grease fittings to allow for periodic servicing to extend product life. Each MOOG part is delivered complete with slotted or castellated nuts and cotter pins for fast, easy installation.

“We are pleased to offer the first aftermarket replacement ball joints for these vehicles,” says Mark Boyle, director, steering and suspension products, Federal-Mogul. “MOOG ball joints deliver a real performance and service life advantage over other aftermarket alternatives.”
