The first patent (US 8,925,944) for the Problem Solver bushing, issued in
MOOG now holds 48 U.S. patents covering an array of steering and suspension part designs.
“The MOOG product engineering team never stops innovating – we are always looking for ways to extend our value proposition through even greater component strength, durability, performance and ease of installation,” said Richard Harvey, engineering director steering and suspension products, Federal-Mogul Motorparts.
MOOG’s Problem Solver ball-and-socket design provides enhanced durability along with improved steering and handling characteristics compared to OE-designed bushings in certain applications. These Problem Solver bushings are also permanently lubricated and sealed with premium MOOG boots to prevent contamination.
The hard rubber used in conventional bushings can also make it difficult for technicians to align the sleeve with the vehicle frame bolt hole. The new MOOG bushings offer fast, easy sleeve alignment.
