MOOG INNER TIE ROD ES3488 2001-2010 GM 2500/3500 HD
MOOG KNOWS YOUR GM TRUCK IS HAVING PROBLEMS
You never forget the first day your precious truck started having all the problems it is now. You started your GM truck up one day to go haul a trailer or to just go about your day as usual and for the first time you feel the looseness in your steering and the poor handling. You don't know why so you just ignore it for a little while and hope it goes away.
However, after a few weeks it still hasn't gone away. Now you just have to figure out what the problem is and how to fix it. The problem is your inner tie rods have failed and it's messing up your steering. It doesn't take a DST parts expert to realize that you need to get your truck working properly so that you can pick up that next big load with confidence.
OE DESIGN FLAWS
The problem started when the OE inner tie rod's preload spring shattering under loads. The loss of this socket assembly causes extra movement, which results in loose steering, misalignment, and poor handling. Does all of this sound familiar? This is what happened to your Chevy, GMC, or Cadillac full size truck. But, there is hope to come. Don't send that truck to the dump just yet.
MOOG'S PROBLEM SOLVER
Once Moog's engineers identified the problem in your truck they came up with a solution like only Moog can. ES3488 uses Moog's specified housing and Belleville washer design to eliminate spring bind and shattering under a load. Moog also incorporated hardened powdered-metal bearings that provide a smooth, durable surface that extends service life. The grease grooves in the front and rear bearings of the ensures lubrication flows properly to the bearing surface.
