Federal-Mogul Holdings Corp. reports its Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ Moog steering and suspension brand has introduced complete knuckle assemblies that dramatically simplify bearing replacement and save time on several popular late-model passenger vehicle applications.
New Moog complete knuckle assemblies include all of the premium components – Moog knuckle and backing plate with corrosion-resistant E-coat; Moog wheel hub assembly; National axle bearing; axle nut; and lock ring – needed for a complete repair. By relying on this comprehensive, bolt-on solution, service providers can save time and eliminate the need for special tools or a press, resulting in an easier installation, the company notes.
“Once again, Moog has delivered an innovative solution that offers significant benefits for the front-line service provider,” says Bryon Osterland, general manager, chassis, Americas, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “We are confident this product will streamline bearing replacement on an ever-growing range of passenger vehicle models.”
