TRW Aftermarket has made many new additions to its product range, introducing 170 new braking, steering and suspension part numbers and 22 new shock absorbers, representing the biggest expansion of 2015.
The new parts are for a host of application from leading vehicle manufacturers and the company expects many to be in big demand, especially new shock absorbers for Mercedes Benz, Land Rover Freelander 1998 onwards and Volkswagen Golf V11 2014 onwards.
The range extension comprises: 13 brake calipers; 1 new wheel cylinder; 1 brake disc; 2 parking brake cables; 18 brake pad sets for disc brakes; 1 brake shoe set; 5 tie rod axle joints; 6 ball joints; one control arm/trailing arm bush; 1 steering column; 22 shock absorbers; 3 steering gears; 12 track control arms; 1 shock absorber dust cover kit; 13 tie rod ends; 1 ball head gear shift linkage; 40 centre rod assemblies; 14 rod assemblies; 2 rod strut stabilisers; 11 brake hoses; 2 brake master cylinders; 2 clutch master cylinders and 1 brake caliper repair kit.
Kevin Price, TRW Aftermarket Marketing Manager, commented, “This extension comes just months after the second phase of TRW Aftermarket’s True Originals multimedia campaign was launched, using the messages of ‘speed, power and safety’ to highlight how the business is leading the market in terms of automotive safety, by offering premium quality shock absorbers.” He added, “In most markets TRW differentiates itself from major competitors by offering twin packs in addition to single components, a move which is in direct response to test results which indicate stopping distances can be decreased by up to five percent when shocks are replaced in pairs. Our first to market approach allows us to offer new parts quickly ensuring that no matter how new the vehicle on the ramp is, no garage has to turn away business.”
