Worn Original Ball Joints

Trucks and SUVs put a lot of stress on ball joints because of the weight and use of these vehicles and design and materials used in a ball joint can accelerate the wearing down process. Some Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury trucks and SUVs have a reputation for needing ball joint replacements because of some design factors that cause them to wear out prematurely, like a plastic bearing and the lack of a greasable design.

Some of the symptoms of worn ball joints are clunking noises, vibration, and steering wander so if you're experiencing these symptoms of a bad ball joint then it's definitely worth checking them for play. If you do need a replacement then you could get another OE ball joint, but it will have the same problems as your originals.

Moog Problem Solver Ball Joints

For longer lasting ball joints you need better materials and a design that allows for grease maintenance for proper lubrication, and that's what you get with Moog's front lower ball joint for Ford trucks and SUV's.

By manufacturing their ball joint with a full ball metal stud you don't have to worry about your loaded down truck grinding away at a plastic liner. The grease-permeable gusher bearing and grease zerk fitting allows new grease to be pumped in and cover the entire inner surface, plus any contaminates that have made their way inside can be flushed out. The integral dust boot sits lower and has a wider range of motion without damaging the boot like the original design.


The Best, Longest Lasting Option

The benefits of going with this Moog ball joint over an original equipment ball joint are better performance over more miles. Hands down, they are just designed to last longer and Moog's Problem Solver Ball Joints have even been shown to last 5X longer than other leading aftermarket ball joint replacements.

So if you're looking for a ball joint that will perform better and last longer than your originals get Moog's K8695T front lower ball joint.

* If the housing for your ball joint has been worn out as well you should check out K8695T006 for an over-sized design that will fit better because of the wider housing diameter.

starstarstarstarstar" great "

I have been a mechanic for 29years, i never had a problem with MOOG, once I replace a front suspension part with MOOG it was life time until now. 4-5 years ago I bought two lower ball joints for a Chevy s-10 pick-up and they went bad in 2 years! Why? because MOOG sold OUT! they let a cheap, cheap, cheap, manufacture make there parts and put there name on it. So after purchasing the parts direct, I hope a get the parts that where made from Moog. If they do not last and I think there from a cheap manufacture, I will put that on Face Book and twiter. Editors note: The ball joints and tie rod ends we sell are MOOG parts. They carry a limited lifetime warranty.
