The problem solver philosophy


MOOG®’s reputation as “The Problem Solver®” can be traced all the way back to 1937, when MOOG first produced a front-end replacement part recognized by technicians as outperforming the factory original. From electrically heat-treated springs in the 1920s and gusher bearings in the 1950s to recent developments, MOOG became known for its ability to consistently develop problem-solving solutions.

Today, MOOG takes great pride in being called The Problem Solver. This philosophy guides us in creating steering & suspension parts that you can count on. From design innovations to educating technicians and customers, the problem-solving spirit is alive and well at MOOG.

Problem-solving innovations separate MOOG parts from the competition. These advancements are made with the technician in mind, leading to long-lasting chassis parts that are designed, tested and manufactured for easy installation and long-lasting performance. From a Problem Solver powdered metal gusher bearing that extends the life of MOOG tie rods, to a pre-installed dust boot on our Problem Solver MOOG ball joints, these application-specific innovations can be found throughout the MOOG catalog.

Look for MOOG Problem Solver innovations on your MOOG part, whether it’s castle nuts on tie rods and ball joints or large wrench flats on socket-style sway bar links.  It is your assurance that your part has design enhancements that extend product life or simplify installation and replacement.
