Moog Problem Solver Ball Joints

Moog Ball Joints provide long-lasting dependability and performance. Moog ball joints are made with a hardened steel stud ball. These have a full 360-degree range of movement, allowing for consistent stud articulation throughout the life of the part. Grease grooves allow full lubrication between the housing and the ball stud for extended life.

Ball joints are a pivotal part of your vehicle's suspension, so go with the best replacement with Moog's Ball Joints. A ball joint allows your wheels to rotate when you turn the steering wheel. If your ball joint has failed or is failing, your vehicle's ability to turn is severely hindered. Moog's Ball Joints use innovated designs to maximize the performance and durability of your suspension.

question_answer Customer Questions and Answers

I just ordered 2 K9048 ball joints from Amazon. I noticed that they do not look the same. one of the joints has blue boot retainers with a more bulbous boot. The other has a yellow and a green boot retainer with a more conical shape to the boot. I am curious if I received the wrong part or if Moog has recently changed the design of their ball joints.
Moog only has two colors of dust boots, either the black rubber boot or the new blue thermoplastic dust boots. We can not say about the yellow dust boot as that is not a color they use.
