Inside MOOG® Ball Joints for Compression-Loaded Suspensions
An industry leader in the manufacturing of steering and suspension parts, MOOG® is always looking for the next design breakthrough. It is this continuous spirit of innovation that has earned MOOG the Problem Solver nickname. MOOG engineers have done it again with design enhancements to ball joints for compression-loaded suspensions.
MOOG ball joints for compression-loaded suspension systems now include multiple new design enhancements, like a new patent pending integral dust boot and a patented bearing design. These features – along with an improved forged housing – increase strength and durability, extend service life and improve ease of installation.
Advantages of MOOG’s Patent Pending Integral Dust Boot
KEEPS CONTAMINATION OUT
Added sealing surface against mating part results in the boot sealing in two ways – one against the stud and one against the part – leaving no exposed stud after installation
MAINTAINS GREASE FLOW
Multiple passages assure proper grease flow (check valves installed on each passage)
PRE-INSTALLED FOR CONVENIENCE
Pre-installed dust boot saves installation time
BUILT TO LAST
Boot made from a TPU/polyurethane material for better tear, abrasion, flex cracking and impact resistance over common rubber materials
Belleville spring integrated with boot for improved seal
