Federal-Mogul’s Moog Steering and Suspension brand has introduced 43 new replacement parts that address the service requirements of millions of late-model foreign-nameplate and domestic passenger vehicles. The Moog brand, the automotive service industry’s “Problem Solver,” offers innovative technologies that improve on original component designs for longer life, superior performance and faster, easier installation.
The new parts include 12 patent-pending Moog Problem Solver control arm bushings that eliminate stress-induced failures encountered with the original equipment-style design used on more than 25.5 million passenger vehicles. Available immediately for several popular models from Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, Honda, and Mazda, the new Moog bushings feature a ball-and-socket design that provides up to 10 times the life of OE-style bushings while delivering improved steering and handling feel and faster, easier installation.
Other new parts now available through Moog distributors are left and right outer tie rod ends for late-model BMW (325xi, 328i xDrive, 328xi, 330xi, 335i xDrive, and 335xi) and Mazda 6 models; lower ball joints for Mazda 3 (2007-2009) and Mini Cooper (2007-2012) models; and front stabilizer bar bushing kits for 2011-2013 Chevrolet Cruze and 2012-2013 Nissan NV1500, NV2500 and NV3500 models. The Moog R-Series line of replacement control arms and assemblies also continues to grow, with 14 new part numbers for an array of popular Acura, BMW, Chevrolet, Honda, Hyundai, Isuzu, Kia, Mercedes-Benz, and Mitsubishi models. In addition, Moog has introduced several new alignment kits and shims for a variety of Ford and General Motors models.
