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 JT-6 High Temp Multi-Purpose Grease tube refill.

Moog fulfills their warranty through their individual dealers. That means that in order to receive warranty support, you will have to refer back to the original dealer you purchased the part from. Be sure to check the dealer's warranty support before you buy the part to make sure that they will properly support the warranty. If a dealer will only refer you back to the manufacturer in order to receive warranty support, then you may not actually have any warranty at all.
Moog Premium Steering Components carry a Limited Lifetime Warranty. Moog R-Series Control Arms, Hub Assemblies, and Strut Assemblies carry a 3 Year Warranty.
Moog warranties their parts to be free of defects in materials and/or workmanship during these timeframes as measured from the date of purchase.
If a Moog part should fail due to materials or manufacturing defect while under warranty, we will provide a replacement of the part upon return of the defective part.
Wearable RUBBER parts are not covered under warranty (Dust boots, bushings, bump stops, etc.)
Front Lower Ball Joint | 1970-2002 Chevrolet Camaro
The MOOG-k6145t Ball Joint is a better replacement for the original ball joints than OE replacements. The original joints are susceptible to damage from different road hazards that may break them down. When the ball joint breaks down, the vehicle can experience clanking and banging, uneven tire wear, and wheel misalignment. This ball joint was made to keep the wheels stable through the pre-installed features that make these ball joints better than standard OE ball joints. These features include the gusher bearing that allows for grease to move freely and the heat-treated stud for more durability.
The Symptoms of a Failing Ball Joint
This ball joint can be used for a wide variety of vehicles ranging from the Chevrolet Camaro to the Oldsmobile Cutlass, so the strain that the ball joints go through can vary. But overall, if the factory ball joints for these vehicles fail, the vehicle and its driver could possibly go through problems that make driving more difficult. When some debris gets inside a ball joint, it starts to break down. When ball joints break down, they might loosen, and the vehicle may experience some wheel misalignment and uneven tire wear. The k6145t ball joint, like other "Problem Solver" ball joints, is made specifically to resist certain potential problems and last much longer than factory-supplied ball joints.
What Makes This Ball Joint so Special?
All of MOOG's "Problem Solver" Ball Joints have features that are made to help make sure they last a long time and do not break. Its design allows for the ball joint to be easily greased. It also has a gusher bearing that allows for the easy flow of grease through the bearing while also flushing out the debris that finds its way inside the joint. It has a heat-treated stud that is resistant to breaking while also being flexible enough in emergency situations. Finally, it also boasts a pressed-in endplate that keeps itself pressed against the bottom of the ball joint to keep it from rattling around if it wears out.
The MOOG-k6145t ball joint is a longer lasting and more durable option for replacing the original ball joints on a multitude of vehicles. Make sure to get your replacements as soon as possible!

When got part it wasnt in box but used it anyway and so far its holding up. Editors note: It is possible that the ball joint was not sent in a Moog box. This is to help our shipping costs. We only sell Moog ball joints. In this case the end plate should have had Moog Problem Solver stamped on it.verified_user Verified Buyer - Ryan bigas - . MOOG moog-k6145t - 4 out of 5

question_answer Customer Questions and Answers
- I damaged the dust boot when installing it on the lower ball joint (K6145T) and want to replace it with the stock MOOG boot. Would you please let me know where I can buy spares.
- Moog does not sell the dust boots. I have universal polyurethane dust boots sold by dimensions. Put this link in a Google or Yahoo search: https://www.suspension.com/universal-dust-boots.asp.
- There has been some confusion as to which Moog ball joints are made in the USA. Are these part numbers made in the USA? K6462 and K6145t. Thank you for your help! -Tim (United States Marine and Proud American)

Each Moog part has the country of origin listed on the label, however, you can order two of the exact same part number but they may come from two differ rent countries of origin! They are the same part but come from two different countries. However, if where they are made is important to you, you may always call us and we can check the label for you before we ship it. ...see more
