Moog Problem Solver: K500210

The Problem: There's not an OE replacement for the front upper ball joint of my Miata?

The front upper ball joint has failed in your 1990-1997 Mazda Miata. You find out that there is not an OE replacement offered. If you go with OE parts you are forced to replace the entire control arm. The OE front upper ball joint cannot be serviced-meaning there's not a grease fitting available to have access to flush out contaminants if necessary.

Greaseable Design

Moog engineered K500210 as the perfect replacement for the OE failed front upper ball joint. It has been designed with knurled housing which enables it to fit securely into the control arm. Engineered into this problem solver is an all-metal gusher bearing to provide strength and allows lubricant to penetrate bearing surfaces for longer life.

starstarstarstarstar" Quality parts "

This part saved my steering from a ton of play. Hence why they put "problem solver" all over the part. The only thing I was confused on was the snap ring, but that was easy once I figured out how to install it, I might have torn the boot while doing so.
