While MOOG greaseable parts come greased from the factory, they should also be greased at the time of installation. After installation, MOOG recommends greasing these parts at each oil change for the best service life.
Out of grease? No problem we've got you covered with this Mystik Multi-Purpose Grease tube refill.

K500063 provides a premium alternative to replacing the lower control arm
Moog Problem Solver: K500063
The Problem: The OE Ball Joint is Non-Servicable
Is your Jeep Compass, Jeep Patriot, or Dodge Caliber experiencing a loss of handling or early tire wear? This can be caused by your front lower ball joints failing. The OE balljoints that come factory installed on your Jeep or Dodge are non-serviceable, this leads to contaminant buildup and corrosion, eventually resulting in the ball joint's failure. What makes this worse is that you can't get a ball joint separately from the factory, this leaves technicians no choice but to install entire control arms. We here at DST know how important it is to get your Jeep or Dodge up and running again, without breaking your bank.
The Solution: Moog's Problem Solver: K500063
This is where Moog's Problem Solver K500063 Ball Joint steps in. It's a first-to-market, premium alternative to replacing the entire lower control arm, saving you money right off the bat. This ball joint features a knurled housing, a snap ring, and even includes a new pinch bolt for secure mounting. In addition, this ball joint features Moog's powdered metal "gusher" bearing. This bearing transfers vehicle loads through the ball joint and into the housing, reducing stress on the joint itself. Finally, this ball joint is designed to be easily greaseable. A zerk fitting comes with this ball joint, once attached you can add grease to the joint, both lubricating it, and flushing out potentially harmful contaminants. All of these features are designed to lengthen the life-span of the ball joint, reducing the chance for failure and saving you even more money down the road.
Installation and Warranty
Installing the K500063 can be tricky, removing the control arm from the vehicle needs to be done first. After that Moog recommends using a press tool to get the old ball joint out, pressing on it from the top so the flat end comes out first. After that, install the K500063 from the top and reattach the control arm. Detailed instructions are included with the part to ensure a flawless installation. The K500063 is covered with Moog's lifetime warranty, handled in house here at DST, and it's ready to ship to you today directly from our Stephenville location so you can get back up and running very soon!

Very happy with this fix to my car. Jeep here in New Zealand quoted $900NZ for a single lower control arm, stating that the ball joint could not be purchased alone. I purchased 2 ball joints and inclusive of freight cost $170NZ. The Moog kit was very simple to install, less than 1 hours labor.verified_user Verified Buyer - Wendy - .

question_answer Customer Questions and Answers
- I could not install the Snap ring since the slot to put this piece is inside the control arms. It is that correct?
- The groove needs to be exposed for the snap ring to retain the ball joint. Make sure the ball joint is installed correctly and it is not cocked to one side. This could keep the ball joint from fully seating.
- I noticed that there is not space to put the snap ring. Is that correct?
- The groove must be exposed so the snap ring can be installed.
