Problem Solver: K5263
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? All of these issues are the result of lateral deflection, or in laments terms, the side to side movement of the ball joint. This is causing your ball joint to wear prematurely. 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.
Moog's Solution to the OE Problem
To address the excessive lateral deflection in the ball joint housing Moog has utilized their patented cover plate design. This cover plate is designed specifically to eliminate the excessive lateral deflection that is present in the OE design of your car's ball joint. Moog has added a flange-style sealed boot equipped with a grease-relief valve to K5263 that keeps out harmful road contaminants and provides a serviceable sealed environment. This addition to Moog's ball joint has made it more durable than the OE design as well as giving it a longer life.
But Wait There's More!
Moog's ball joint K5263 also has a hardened powdered-metal gusher bearing for a smooth and durable surface that extends service life. Moog's front lower ball joint is easy to install, saving you precious time and money over OE replacements. Moog's problem solver ball joints also come with a lifetime warranty that can be handled through our customer service team here at DST. So you can buy with the confidence that once you purchase these ball joints you'll never have to pay for them again.
