MOOG parts come greased from the factory, but 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.

  • 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.

Front Lower Ball Joint | Chevy and GMC

The MOOG-k6541 Ball Joint is made to replace a factory-supplied ball joint and restore smooth steering control. The joint may start to fail when dirt and other debris gets into the joint or if the joint starts to stress from over use or strain. When the bearing fails or comes loose, the vehicle may start to show symptoms like clanking and banging, uneven tire wear, and wheel misalignment. This k6541 ball joint combats these problems with the features that come pre-installed in the ball joint, like the gusher bearing that allows for grease to move freely and the heat treated stud that allows for more flexibility and durability, plus others. These joints help keep the wheels stable and prevent problems that could make things more difficult later on.

What Happens when Ball Joint Fails?

Vehicles like the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra are both vehicles that haul heavy loads and are built to go across bumpy, dirt roads. Over time, the strain and debris going into the part, will start to break down the normal factory supplied ball joints. When the factory-made ball joints start to wear down, the vehicle starts to show signs that can hinder the vehicle's performance. The wheels would start to tilt and the tires would start to wear because of the lack of support from the ball joints. This MOOG-k6541 ball joint is specially made to resist these issues and be long-lasting in its use.


The Features of the Ball Joint

All of MOOG's "Problem Solver" Ball Joints have features that are built-in that ensure their high-quality performance and longevity. The ball joint has a design that makes the joint easily re-greasable. It also boasts a slotted gusher bearing that allows for the free movement of grease and flushes out debris that makes its way into the joint. Its sealed design is also a deterrent against debris and dirt getting into the ball joint. Finally, it also has a heat-treated stud that is able to resist breaking while also being flexible enough to avoid stress.

The MOOG-k6541 ball joint is one of the best options for resisting dirt and strain from heavy loads for the Chevy Silverado and the GMC Sierra, so pick some up as soon as you can!

starstar_borderstar_borderstar_borderstar_border" Very disappointed "

I bought this because of its lifetime warranty, I hope they stand behind it because it has already failed. I just changed the whole suspension, got an alignment, and put new tires on the truck, now I have to pay someone to do it all over again. Soo over this!!! Editors Note: We have replaced the k6541 warranty claim. We do stand behind the Moog limited lifetime warranty. \n\n
