While MOOG greaseable parts come greased from the factory, they should also be greased at the time of installation. After installation, MOOG recommends greasing these parts at each oil change for the best service life.
Out of grease? No problem we've got you covered with this Lucas Xtra Heavy Duty Grease tube refill.
lock Warranty Information keyboard_arrow_down
Moog fulfills their warranty through their individual dealers. That means that in order to receive warranty support, you will have to refer back to the original dealer you purchased the part from. Be sure to check the dealer's warranty support before you buy the part to make sure that they will properly support the warranty. If a dealer will only refer you back to the manufacturer in order to receive warranty support, then you may not actually have any warranty at all.
Moog Premium Steering Components carry a Limited Lifetime Warranty. Moog R-Series Control Arms, Hub Assemblies, and Strut Assemblies carry a 3 Year Warranty.
Moog warranties their parts to be free of defects in materials and/or workmanship during these timeframes as measured from the date of purchase.
If a Moog part should fail due to materials or manufacturing defect while under warranty, we will provide a replacement of the part upon return of the defective part.
Wearable RUBBER parts are not covered under warranty (Dust boots, bushings, bump stops, etc.)

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
