Front Upper Ball Joint | 1994-1999 Dodge Ram 2500

The ball joints' job is to let the wheel move to accommodate different changes while driving, like turning sway, road angles, and bumps. Trucks like the Ram 2500 go through many things that break down ball joints, like dirt, heavy loads, debris coming into the joint, and general wear over time. As ball joints wear down, you might notice things like steering issues, clanking noises, and uneven tire wear. The MOOG-k80026 Front Upper Ball Joint has features that prevent these issues from coming up, like its gusher bearing, heat treated stud, and greasable design, making this ball joint one of the best options for vehicles like the Ram 2500.

What Happens when a Ball Joint Fails?

This MOOG-Ball Joint is very helpful in fixing and preventing problems that a failing ball joint may cause. Heavy loads hauled by trucks and vans every day, dirt from gravel roads, and general wear and tear all wear down the vehicle's standard ball joints. Also, grease inside the joint drying out and debris getting into the joint can cause the ball joint to break down. When ball joints start to break down, the vehicle starts to feel sluggish in its steering, the tires start to wear out unevenly, and the wheels may also start to tilt. These problems can make driving the vehicle dangerous.


The Cost of the Damages

MOOG Ball Joints have many beneficial features that ensure the part is long-lasting and easy to manage. The ball joint has a heat-treated stud that is both strong and flexible at the same time. It allows the stud to resist breaking but be flexible enough to bend if the vehicle is in an accident. Also, the bearing makes use of a gusher bearing, a piece of metal that is slotted to allow for easy and long-lasting lubrication of the whole ball joint. Finally, it also boasts a greasable design that allows for the reapplication of grease whenever it is needed and lets the ball joint take much longer to wear out.

If you would like a ball joint that can resist the problems that vehicles like the Ram 2500 go through every day, order MOOG-k80026 Front Upper Ball Joint as soon as you can!
