Moog K8607T

OE Design Flaws

Vehicles that require the K8607T Front Lower ball joint are primarily used for heavy duty operations or are driven in harsh environments. The OE design for this ball joint is non-serviceable, meaning that if contaminants get into the part it cannot be flushed and you cannot add more grease if the ball joint loses lubrication.


Moog K8607T

Premium Moog design

Targeting factory defects and poor original design, Moog's Problem Solver K8607T Front Lower ball joint replaces the worn ball joint with a much more durable part. Moog has designed this ball joint by using a premium polychloroprene sealed boot and adding a zerk fitting, granting the ability to add grease to the part, allowing the user to flush out contaminants and keep the part lubricated.


Moog K8607T

Strength and durability

The K8607T ball joint, stocked in our Stephenville warehouse, uses a powdered-metal bearing instead of the usual plastic bearing, increasing the lifespan of the ball joint. The forged one-piece housing that Moog designed further enhances this ball joint's strength and durability. On top of that, the powdered-metal "gusher" bearing transfers vehicle loads through the ball joint and into the housing, reducing stress on the part itself.


Moog K8607T

Installation help

Adding to the difficulty of installation are multiple manufacturing variations with Straight-Axle and Twin I-Beam designs. As a result, installing the part incorrectly is an unfortunately common occurrence. Be sure to follow Moog's installation procedures for this part to avoid any problems. If you have any questions about the manufacturing variations or the K8607T Front Lower Ball joint please call the DST customer service team!

My 2000 Ford F350 is used to tow a 24 enclosed trailer probably 90% of the time. I have about 20,000 miles on the new ball joints and have had no issues with them. My steering has remained tight and responsive.
