Moog Control Arm Bushing 6698

I just wanted to make a thread stating that the Moog 6698 does work in our cars, and does tighten up the feel of the front end. I was searching and couldn't find much info on it, so just adding it for future searchers.

Originals lasted about 70k, I would think these would outlast them by a considerable margin and cost less than $9 each.

Good choice, but the Moog K200792's are superior as they are a bushing / bearing , tightens up the front end nicely!
The HHR is not on the list , apparently because Moog hasn't tried them yet, so they won't stick their neck out, something to do with unlike metals and possibly corrosion.
I've had mine installed for a few years and over 100,000 miles now, they work great for me.

Some chemist out there could explain why "they" say not to butt steel up to aluminum alloy. Anodes and cathodes and electrons. Most people don't know about it, so they don't worry about it.

Yep, galvanic corrosion, I started a thread about that some time ago.

There's more info, if anyone's interested

Yeah I saw those, but I felt the 6698 was still an upgrade over the factory bushing, so I wanted to try them.

I hear you, yeah they're a hugh improvement, but next time get the K200792

And yes I think a lot of us understand different metals and corrosion, like steel spark plugs in aluminum head, front hubs in steering knuckle, steel exhaust clamps and aluminized or galvanized pipe. There are more examples

Just found these on E-Bay, little pricey for zinc coating. For use in aluminium control arms.

Yeah, I was aware of them but I am a very "frugal" person so went with something that is still far superior to the factory piece, but cost three times less.

I just wanted to add it to the searches, that the 6698's do work on our cars and do improve the feel of the front end.

Thanks

So I want to replace all of the bushings in my front end because I am getting some knocking at slow speeds. Is there a list of upgraded parts anywhere that anyone has put together?
