As “The Problem Solver®,” Federal-Mogul’s MOOG products improve on original steering and suspension designs to help make installation faster and easier. In addition, the MOOG brand’s greaseable socket design allows contaminants to be flushed out for longer service life, and a patented cover plate virtually eliminates damaging axial and radial deflection.

Among the new MOOG parts introduced this year are 22 tie rods, 34 sway bar links, 19 strut mounts, 11 control arms, 11 ball joints and dozens of other components covering a wide range of popular domestic and foreign nameplate applications. Nearly 60 percent of the parts added to the MOOG line over the past 12 months specifically address repair needs on foreign nameplate vehicles. Late-model foreign nameplate coverage represented in the most recent MOOG line expansion includes applications from Acura, Audi, Honda, Hyundai, Infiniti, Kia, Lexus, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, Suzuki, and Toyota. The latest new domestic MOOG coverage includes several popular Buick, Chevrolet/GMC, Chrysler, Dodge, Eagle, Ford, Jeep, Pontiac, and Saturn models.
