Hardened powdered metal bearings and a hardened full ball stud provide the most durable wear surface available
Moog Problem Solver: K5289
The Problem: The front lower ball joint on my SUV/Pick up has experienced premature wear
Due to the size of your SUV or truck, the wheel and tire assemblies have to be larger which results in a taller ride height. Ultimately the load from simply turning gets transferred into the ball joints causing radial deflection (or sideways movement), stress and wear on the bearing surface. The OE one piece housing seal has failed allowing contaminants to get in. You never had to worry about this before and were excited when you got your SUV or pick up. Good news, DST can help you enjoy your vehicle once again with Moog Problem Solver K5289.
The Solution: Moog's Problem Solver: K5289
K5289 utilizes a hardened powdered-metal bearing design that allows grease to flow through the bearing surface and onto the stud. This porous material allows a continual lubrication to flush harmful contaminants off the bearing and stud surfaces, reducing wear and increasing performance.
Strength and Durability
Moog designed this ball joint with a metallurgical structure for additional strength and durability. Split bearing technology eliminates excessive radial deflection normally experienced with high lateral loads. A Belleville washer preload provides lower stud articulation torque with minimal axial clearance. A special flange style boot was designed to keep contamination out and provides a serviceable option. This ball joint was specifically designed for the following vehicles:
- 1995-1996 Chevy Blazer, GMC Jimmy
- 1984-1994 Chevy S10 Blazer, GMC S15 Jimmy
- 1984-1996 Chevy S10 Pickup
- 1984-1990 GMC S15 Pickup
- 1991-1996 GMC Sonoma
- 1991 GMC Syclone
- 1992-1993 GMC Typhoon
- 1991-1996 Oldsmobile Bravada
