The new MOOG driveline offering includes anti-galvanic U-joints featuring chemically coated bearing cups and lock rings for protection of aluminum yokes; Super Strength U-joints for high-torque, high-horsepower applications; and heavy duty U-joints for agricultural, commercial, industrial and off-highway uses.

“The MOOG brand is known as ‘The Problem Solver’ as a result of its innovative, better-than-original designs as well as our one-stop offering of solutions for virtually every vehicle. We’re extending this advantage by adding industry-best driveline products to the MOOG portfolio,” said Joe Stephan, director, undercar products, Federal-Mogul Global Aftermarket.
Each MOOG U-joint is machined to meet or exceed original equipment specifications and is tested to Federal-Mogul’s strict quality tolerances for exceptional performance and durability, the company says. Important MOOG engineering features include cold-formed and case-hardened bearing cups for improved strength and wear resistance; premium-quality seals that lock out contaminants and ensure lubricant retention; precisely machined needle bearings designed for maximum loads; radial-design bearing cups that promote 360-degree lubrication; high strength forged and carburized (heat treated) steel crosses that help ensure excellent durability; and an integral grease fitting for easy maintenance and longer life, the company says.
