Federal-Mogul has introduced two MOOG
Problem Solver sway bar bushings that the company says can eliminate excessive
wear issues and related front suspension rattle on popular Chrysler minivan
models. The new MOOG bushings are available immediately through leading
replacement parts distributors across North America.
According to Federal-Mogul, the Problem
Solver parts correct wear issues associated with the original sway bar bushings
and other replacement designs for 1996-2007 Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge
Caravan and Plymouth Voyager minivans. The material used in conventional
bushings for these applications is susceptible to deterioration due to weather,
road chemicals and other contaminants, the company says. In addition, the
bushings for many of these vans may experience excessive movement within the
bracket, further contributing to wear.
Federal-Mogul’s new MOOG Problem Solver
bushings (Part No. K200601 model years 2001-2007; K200600 model years
1996-2000) are 17 percent wider than the original parts for maximum support and
performance and feature an improved locking groove design that prevents
excessive movement within the bracket, according to Federal-Mogul. These new
bushings are manufactured in the U.S. from premium materials and include additional
rubber content that provides greater flex and shock absorption while reducing
material deformation and wear. MOOG product engineers matched the
installation-slot location of the factory parts to speed installation and
reduce side-to-side movement.
The new No. K200601 bushing for
2001-2007 applications includes a special I.D. wear adapter sleeve, which,
along with the part’s premium material, helps prevent damage caused by sway bar
movement, according to the company.
