Federal-Mogul has announced that its MOOG steering and suspension product line has been expanded to include 34 new premium-quality “Asia-Spec,” “Euro-Spec” and domestic components covering nearly 4 million additional passenger vehicles.
Among the latest coverage additions are MOOG Problem Solver “Euro-Spec” replacement front tie rod ends for 2000-2006 Audi TT (EV800637) and 1998-2004 Volvo C70 and 1998-2000 V70 models (EV800623). Other new MOOG Problem Solver parts include an “Asia-Spec” front lower ball joint for 1998-2006 Toyota Land Cruiser and 1998-2007 Lexus LX470 models (K500133) and a rear lower ball joint for more than 1.3 million Ford Escape and Mercury Mariner vehicles, model years 2001-2008.
According to Federal-Mogul, MOOG Problem Solver parts improve on original designs for enhanced performance, easier installation and increased durability. The new Problem Solver tie rod ends feature all-metal bearings for increased strength and longer service life. The new ball joints include the brand’s trademark “gusher” bearing, which allows grease to penetrate all load-bearing surfaces for longer life, and include full-ball studs that provide 360 degrees of smooth, even rotational movement for more responsive steering. Each ball joint also is equipped with a grease fitting and premium MOOG boot for serviceability and superior durability.
