TORONTO, CANADA – October 27, 2020 – Mevotech, a North American market leader in the engineering, design and manufacture of driveline, steering and suspension aftermarket parts, announced today the release of MS25560, a new front lower ball joint for the 2018-2014 Jeep Cherokee (KL).
Hardware and Installation Aids Included for Quick and Easy Fitting
The KL platform uses aluminum front steering knuckles with pressed-in lower ball joints.
Due to design and space restrictions, when ball joint replacement is attempted it often results in damage to the knuckle and/or the new replacement part. So the conventional OE repair procedure involves replacing the entire knuckle with a pre-installed ball joint as an assembly – a costly repair. Mevotech has developed a better solution.
Mevotech has included a unique and exclusive installation tool with the MS25560. This tool has been specially designed to address the challenges when pressing-in the new ball joint. Aside from allowing the new ball joint to be pressed in accurately and simply, it provides an alternative to the conventional repair method of replacing the entire knuckle.
Application-Specific Upgrades for a Strong and Lasting Part
Additionally, Mevotech’s innovative design features greasable sintered metal bearings, bigger ball studs and thicker forged housings for durability and a longer service life.
The MS25560 covers 2018-2014 Jeep Cherokees with a North American VIO of over 92,0000 vehicles. Download the Flyer.
