Moog ball joint part #
Posted by: 110PG ()

Does anyone have the old stock Moog# for the non-threaded lower ball joints? (not the adjustable one or TRW) I did a couple searches but came up empty. Or can you confirm if it’s K6039?

Thanks

MOOG lower ball joints:

ZM-22 (automatic adj)
K-677 (manual adj)

K-6039 std improved design

Hope this helps Joe.

Over the years I've purchased many used / derelict cars.

Since 2008, living here in Coos Bay, I takeall but the Corvairs to the local Walmart for the normal "oil / filter / lube service".

I get the car back with a sheet showing what "Lube points" would not take grease.

Back home on my rack. I find the white Lithium grease on most fittings. And along with those they reported, I usually find more that are plugged.

Corvairs usually have the UPPER plugged / dry as the wheels cover the straight zerk fitting.

To this day I've never had to replace a dry balljoint. I guess people start to lube them after they get loose?

For sure Matt. That upper is tight. The suspension I’m working on has been sitting on a shelf for years and I got some joints with it. I figured I may just as well replace them. It hasn’t been mounted under a car since the 70s.

You are correct about the upper balljoint grease fitting being difficult to hit with the gun or easily overlooked. I replace the short upper fitting with either 45 or 90 degree fitting when I am greasing customers cars the first time around. Next time it is easy for me to put connector onto fitting. (my own too of course)
