Schaeffler has announced the introduction of a steering & suspension programme under its FAG brand.
Steering & suspension components are obviously safety critical, so quality should always be a major consideration for both garage and vehicle owner. The new FAG range aims to deliver quality standards and is backed up by Schaeffler’s REPXPERT workshop support system.
As a technical partner of vehicle manufacturers around the world, as well as more than 130 years of chassis expertise, FAG is said to have an uncompromising approach to quality.
As a result, every single component in the range has been approved by Schaeffler’s own engineers, using stringent testing standards, right down to the last nut, bolt and washer.
Designed for all key applications in the European car parc, the market-oriented range naturally follows Schaeffler’s philosophy of providing installers with a complete repair solution in just one box. This means that as well as being manufactured to the company’s OE quality standards, every component comes complete with all ancillaries – nuts, bolts, washers and clips etc. – so technicians can complete a safe and professional repair with no hunting round for extras.
The FAG chassis component range has been developed from the ground up to benefit from the company’s intelligent repair solution ethos. Ball pins are nitride treated to maximise longevity, whilst all exterior surfaces have zinc flake coating technology to resist corrosion. They are further protected by clear thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) boots, with a micro-sealing lip design that adapts to the ball contour.
Schaeffler UK’s Managing Director, Nigel Morgan, said: “Everything we do is geared towards helping professionals carry out the best possible repairs using the highest quality components. The addition of the FAG steering & suspension range is therefore a significant development, allowing us to provide workshops with a viable alternative from a trusted supplier, along with the market leading workshop support that we offer with every Schaeffler product.”
