Moog Gusher Bearing Technology
The powdered metal Gusher Bearing in Moog's Problem Solver ball joints make complete lubrication of the ball joint possible, increasing lifespan by flushing out contaminates and refreshing grease.
Preventing Bad Ball Joints
Most stock ball joints are supposed to have an adequate lifespan without needing any sort of maintenance and because of this most stock ball joints are designed as a sealed system to keep debris out. Unfortunately, when you put a lot of miles on a vehicle the odds that your ball joints will take on some dirt or moisture get higher. If contaminates do make their way into the inner workings of the ball joints then wear and corrosion will number their days.
Since the originals are a sealed system you won't be able to service them with new grease and this means a ball joint replacement is in the near future. If you want to do some preventative maintenance on your ball joints then you need a ball joint that will let the grease go where it needs to.
True Serviceable Ball Joint
If you want to do some preventative maintenance on your ball joints then you need a ball joint that will let the grease go where it needs to. Moog ball joints with Gusher Bearing technology allow grease to travel through the powdered metal bearing all the way through the ball joint, covering all working surfaces with new grease while pushing moisture and debris out. This is a great benefit for folks who spend a lot of time driving in rainy or snowy weather or enjoy throwing some mud around or going off-road. Even people who just put a lot of miles on their vehicles can have longer lasting ball joints with this greasable design. The Moog Gusher Bearing in the Problem Solver ball joint gives you a longer effective lifespan than the originals through the possibility of painless regular maintenance.
