Federal-Mogul Introduces Innovative Lower Ball Joint for Lincoln LS

Federal-Mogul Corporation has introduced an innovative Moog Problem Solver front lower ball joint for 2000-2005 Lincoln LS sedans.
The new MoogProblem Solver part (p/n K500084, model years 2000-2001; K500085, model years 2002-2005) eliminates the need for technicians to purchase and install a steering knuckle when replacing the original equipment front lower ball joint. Other replacement ball joints for these applications are available only as part of the steering knuckle assembly, increasing the complexity and cost of the repair, says Federal-Mogul.
“By installing our premium Moog Problem Solver part, vehicle service providers can offer their customers a long-lasting and cost-effective solution,” said Mark Boyle, global manager, chassis and visibility products, Federal-Mogul. “Our problem-solving engineering approach helps restore like-new steering and ultimately helps service facilities build stronger customer relationships.”
The premium Moog Problem Solver ball joint has been specially equipped with a durable resin-plated housing to help prevent galvanic corrosion when mated with the aluminum steering knuckle. Other key features of the Moog part are Federal-Mogul’s proven powdered-metal “gusher” bearing, hardened full-ball stud design and premium sealed polyurethane boot.
