moog ball joint question

Discussion in '1973-1991 K5 Blazer | Truck | Suburban' started by fireinthehole, Sep 6, 2003.

    For those of you that have recently replaced your ball joints with moog's, I have a question. Did the upper's come with dust caps? I opened the box on some and they didnt have them. The guy at the parts store called another store and it was the same. Do the new moog ball joints not come with dust caps? Their website doesnt say much. The lowers have them. I bought some a few years ago for another Sub and I remember there was dust caps.

    *Update* I called the Moog tech line and yes, they are supposed to come with dust caps.

    I don't know, but I have a question for you. What's Moog's web site? I've never been able to find it. Where did you get Moog part? Local parts houses claim not to carry them.

    In an effert to help, I have Moog's Customer Support number at home (granted last time I called was 4 years ago). I'll post it tonight (granted I find it)
    Thanks

    I replaced my ball joints with moog ball joints a couple months ago. Local auto parts store, that is all they carry /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif but they did come with dust caps.

    It appears that Moog is owned by Federal-Mogul.
    The Moog part of the Federal-Mogul site can be found here:

  4. What nerdboy said, off of the federal-mogul website.

    Muddytazz: thats what I thought. I told them they were supposed to come with dust caps.

    I just checked my shelf based on a 10 bolt and they do have the dust cover included.

    I just purchased mine today from the local parts store and they had the dust caps with them so you might want to get them to get you some dust caps...Jason
