MOOG® Announces New Control Arm Part Numbers in February
Southfield, Mich., March 2, 2021…MOOG®, the premium steering and suspension brand from Tenneco’s DRiV division, introduced 15 new control arms for a variety of applications in February, including three first-to-market parts.
New this month are two control arm and ball joint assemblies (CK623245, front right lower; and CK623246, front left lower) that feature MOOG’s High Utilization design, engineered specifically for vehicles that are driven more than most, or that are driven under rough or challenging conditions. Each part is designed for extra strength, performance and durability, featuring enhanced materials construction and innovative design features that provide extra protection and extra-quiet operation to ensure a more comfortable ride. These new parts are available for the 2013-2018 Ford Focus, expanding coverage to more than 1.7 million vehicles in operation (VIO).
MOOG has also introduced premium control arms for the 2015-2019 Subaru Legacy and Outback, covering over 1.2 million VIO. These parts, RK623476 (front right lower) and RK623477 (front left lower), contain installation-ready ball joints that are sealed for maintenance-free operation to help protect the socket from dust, debris and water. Each control arm is designed for direct-fit replacement, making steering alignment and installation easy for technicians, and are engineered to prevent premature failure and deterioration through its enhanced structural strength and e-coat cast iron and steel construction.
"This expansion of our control arms line solidifies MOOG’s commitment to offering premium repair solutions to technicians”
said Kim Plante, product management lead, Chassis
“As a vital part of a vehicle’s safety system, control arms need to be precision-engineered for optimum performance, and MOOG ensures that each part is tested and manufactured to meet the needs of each vehicle for safety and dependability.”
