MOOG, the steering and suspension brand of Tenneco Inc.’s DRiV group, recently announced 79 new part numbers for its ball joints, control arms, tie rods and more during the third quarter of 2022, increasing the total number of new parts available this year to 148.

Part numbers RK623739 (lower right front) and RK623740 (upper right front) are parts for the 2019-2017 Cadillac XT5 and GMC Acadia (covering nearly 550,000 VIOs).

MOOG continues to test and develop new engineering solutions to improve the vehicle’s ride and performance. Application-specific innovations in MOOG’s premium control arms include induction-hardened pins and carbon fiber-reinforced PTFE bearings. Induction hardened pins provide extra strength, while proprietary carbon fiber reinforced bearings reduce seat friction compared to typical non-reinforced bearings, ensuring longer seat life. Premium control levers also feature increased structural strength and increased corrosion resistance.

MOOG introduced High Utilization hub assemblies earlier this year. These enhanced MOOG products feature improvements for reliability, durability and long-lasting performance in trucks, even under challenging, heavy-duty conditions. New special components include a new heat shield to protect the ABS sensor cable in high temperature conditions; new generation outboard bearing design built into the spindle for increased strength and durability; and an improved Grime Defense internal seal and external seal to provide maximum protection against water, salt, dust and road grime.

“As we’ve shown throughout 2022, MOOG engineers are constantly striving to create and improve our products to exceed our customers’ expectations for durability, quality and affordability,” said Adam Richardson, MOOG’s Director of Brands and Products. “We design every part to exacting specifications and make sure they are tested to our high standards, so it’s easy for us to uphold MOOG’s name as The Problem Solver.”
