Hardened powdered metal bearings and a hardened full ball stud provide the most durable wear surface available
Moog Problem Solver: K5335
The Problem: The front lower ball joint on your 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 K5335.
The Solution: Moog's Problem Solver: K5335
Moog Part Number K5335 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:
- 1997-2005 Chevy Blazer 4WD
- 1997-2003 Chevy S10 Pickup 4WD, GMC Sonoma 4WD
- 1997-2001 GMC Jimmy 4WD, Oldsmobile Bravada 4WD
- 1998-2001 GMC Envoy 4WD
- 2004 Chevy S10 Pickup Crew Cab 4WD
