Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a pision of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corp., never rests on its laurels. Last month, the company has added 48 new part numbers—almost half of which are the first available within the aftermarket for their applications—to the MOOG® line of driveline components, wheel hub assemblies, and steering and suspension parts. The new parts cover over 100 million potential service opportunities spanning a wide array of popular late-model European, Asian, and North American passenger vehicles.
The following are included among the 21 first-to-the-aftermarket parts: front alignment camber/caster plate (K100326) for nearly 19.6 million Chevrolet, Cadillac, Hummer and GMC light trucks and SUVs ranging from the 1999 to 2016 model years; front suspension strut mount (K160336) for over Honda Odyssey (2011-2013) and Pilot (2009-2015) vehicles; and a front upper ball joint (K100315) for approximately 1.8 million Dodge Ram 1500 (2006-2008), 2500HD and 3500HD (2003-2010) and 2500 and 3500 (2011-2016) models.
Moreover, the MOOG chassis portfolio now has the aftermarket’s first front upper ball joint (K100316) for over 2.2 million Dodge Ram 1500 trucks, model years 2006-2016; rear coil spring set (81609) for Chevrolet Traverse (2009-2012), Buick Enclave (2008-2012), Saturn Outlook (2007-2010), and GMC Acadia (2007-2012) SUVs; and idler arm (K40018) for 2011-2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD and GMG Sierra 2500HD and 3500HD trucks.
According to Bryon Osterland, general manager, global steering and suspension, Federal-Mogul Motorparts, MOOG is the clear quality and coverage leader within their combined product categories, and they continue to build on this advantage with each monthly expansion of the MOOG product line.
Included in the other high-volume service opportunities now covered by MOOG are replacement of front lower ball joints (K500239) on Hyundai Sonata (2011), Tucson (2010-2013) and Kia Sportage (2011-2013) models, as well as front upper ball joint replacement (K500259) on 2011-2015 Ford F450 Super Duty trucks. The company also launched a number of additional MOOG R-Series control arms and assemblies for approximately 426,000 Chevrolet Blazer (2001-2005) and S10 (2001-2004), Sonoma (2001-2004) and GMC Jimmy (2001-2005) models.
