SOUTHFIELD, Mich. Federal-Mogul reports it has again expanded its MOOG line of replacement steering and suspension components. Among the 16 new MOOG parts added are what Federal-Mogul reports to be aftermarket’s first lower front ball joints for late-model Pontiac Vibe passenger cars, along with nine new control arms covering a variety of popular foreign nameplate and domestic applications.
Available immediately through MOOG distributors, the brand's front lower ball joint (No. K500174) covers 2009-2010 Pontiac Vibe 2.4-liter models. This premium ball joint features the brand’s full-ball socket configuration for more responsive steering and all-metal “gusher” bearing technology for longer life, the company says. Federal-Mogul engineers also integrated a grease fitting for maintaining and extending service life, and a highly durable “grease release” polyurethane boot, which directs contaminants out of the socket and away from brake components during lubrication.
Additional new MOOG parts include premium front lower control arms with MOOG ball joints for 1999-2004 Honda Odyssey minivans as well as millions of General Motors passenger cars including the Buick Skylark, Chevrolet Beretta and Cavalier and Oldsmobile Achieva ranging from the 1982 through 1996 model years. MOOG coverage for foreign nameplate applications continues to expand as well, Federal-Mogul said, with new steering and suspension parts for popular BMW, Honda, Land Rover, Mazda and Toyota applications.
“Technicians look to MOOG for the earliest and best replacement parts for today’s vehicles. We continue to deliver industry leading coverage and innovation,” said Mark Boyle, director, steering and suspension products, Federal-Mogul. “Our product and engineering teams closely monitor emerging repair needs and respond with products that deliver exceptional performance, easier installation and extended durability.”
