MOOG, a steering and suspension brand, introduced 513 new parts during 2018, including 178 first-to-market parts. MOOG continues to increase its number of potential repair opportunities in the market every month, with the 2018 releases covering over 344 million repair occasions.
Newest to the part line are control arm and ball joint assemblies (RK643074) for the 2009-2018 Dodge Ram 1500; first-to-market ball joints (K500359) for the 2015-2017 Ford F150; and control arms (RK642986) for the 2012-2017 Toyota Camry.
Tie rod ends (EV801307) for the 2015-2017 Hyundai Sonata and 2017 Kia Cadenza; premium, greaseable universal joints (321) for the 2004-2007 Ford F150 and 2005 F150 SuperCrew; and the 2006-2007 Lincoln Mark LT and 2005-2006 Navigator complete the lineup.
Collectively, these parts cover over eight million VIO.
Last year also saw considerable expansion of the MOOG premium-quality complete knuckle assemblies product line, offering coverage for the 2006-2012 Ford Fusion, 2006-2011 Mercury Milan, 2007-2012 Lincoln MKZ and 2006 Zephyr, and 2003-2008 Mazda6 (excluding the 2006-2007 Mazda Speed).
MOOG knuckle assemblies simplify bearing replacement dramatically and save time on many popular late-model passenger vehicle applications. They include all the premium components pre-assembled for a complete repair, including MOOG knuckle and backing plates with corrosion-resistant E-coat, MOOG wheel hubs, National® bearings, axle nuts, and lock rings.
By relying on this comprehensive, bolt-on solution, service providers can save time and do away with the need for special tools or a press, resulting in an easier installation.
“Every month, MOOG continues to expand its product line to offer technicians the best possible, innovative solutions to cover their customers’ vehicle repair needs, demonstrated through the continued expansion of our problem-solving solutions,” says Kevin Kolath, director, Product and Business Development, Steering and Suspension, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “In 2019, the MOOG team will continue to expand the offering of premium products for a range of applications to provide shops with the best quality products available.”
