GM Ball Joint wearing out?
Has your GM car been experiencing some shimmying in the front end? Has your steering wheel had some extra play in it lately? What about your tires wearing unevenly?

Here at DST we understand that this is frustrating and would like to introduce to you the solution to these problems, Moog part number K5263.
OE Design Problem
The OE ball joints do not account for lateral deflection in the ball joint housing, which can be an issue that causes them to wear sooner than expected. If the ball joint wears too much they can even break which could lead to even more problems and costly repairs.
