New Moog steering components rusting like crazy?!

I recently upgraded my TJ steering to heavy duty Moog parts from a Grand Cherokee. After only about a month on, they are rusting like crazy. Never had this issue with the original components. Although I am in the salt crazed Midwest, I wash it religiously. So that is not the issue.

Any thoughts on this?

Most of your Jeep's underpinnings were painted at the factory, replacement Moog parts often are unpainted. If you want the keep the parts from rusting, you'll need to paint them or provide some other protective coating.

I learned that a power steering leak gives everything a good rust-resistant coating.

A can of MavCoat a couple times a year is easy and makes a real difference to components under the jeep.

Rear main and valve cover leaks help even more.
