When restoring a 70s Datsun, the steering parts are vital. Identifying the correct ball joint alone can be a little tricky, so trying to find an entire steering package can be intimidating.

Steering Parts Included

Included in this kit are the front lower ball joints for both the driver and passenger side. All four tie rods are included in this pack as well, accompanied with two tie rod adjusting sleeves. The Problem Solver line is Moog's top line of parts. Through extensive research and engineering, these problem solver parts target factory original problems and provide a new part to outlast and outperform the OE part.
Moog's "Problem Solver" Ball Joints
Starting with the ball joints, we have the upper and lower ball joint for each side. Your ball joints are mounted in the control arm or spindle. Inside this part is a ball joint stud that swings to compensate for the up and down movement in your suspension. So your ball joint basically works simultaneously for the steering and suspension. Once your ball joint fails due to rust or factory defect, your truck will being to pull to either side, your steering wheel will have extra play, your front end will shake and your tires will wear prematurely and unevenly. So with all that being said, it is vital that you choose a replacement ball joint that is dependable.
Moog's problem solver ball joints are just that, dependable. Designed with a grease-able design and a hardened steel stud, these ball joints are durable and easily serviced to ensure a long life. Included with the ball joints are zerk grease fittings and neoprene dust boots to seal in the grease and keep out harmful road contaminants.
Tie Rod Ends
Also included in Package Deal 005 are all four tie rod ends you need. There are two outer tie rods, one for each side. As well as two inner tie rods, one for each side. The tie rod is a major pivot point in the steering system. Like the ball joints, the tie rod has a ball and socket design on one side that connects to the steering arm. When your steering wheel moves, this ball and socket allows the wheels to turn. With Moog's problem solver tie rod ends, you can ensure that your vehicle's steering ability is increased and stays dependable.
Tie Rod End Adjusting Sleeves
Lastly in the package are the two tie rod end adjusting sleeves. These sleeves are coated for corrosion resistance and are made of steel for durability. The adjusting sleeves join the tie rod ends to the steering linkage and allow your Datsun to be aligned properly. All Moog Problem solver steering components are backed with a lifetime warranty handled in house at DST. If you have any questions be sure to give us a call or hit the live chat button.
