CRP Automotive has expanded its line of Rein Automotive anti-vibration and suspension parts with vehicle coverage starting from the 1990 model year. Key applications also have been incorporated for late model European makes.
CRP has added over 100 SKUs to the program in the past six months, the company says. Rein Automotive now offers well over 700 SKUs including many first to market anti-vibration and suspension replacement parts for Audi, BMW, Mercedes Benz, Mini, Porsche and VW applications.
In addition to traditional rubber and rubber-to-steel motor, transmission and strut mounts, and bushings, the Rein Automotive anti-vibration parts program features optimum coverage and availability of newer hydraulic mounts, which are seeing increasing application by carmakers. The Rein Automotive hydraulic mounts are direct replacements for the components used by the OEMs.
According to David Hirschhorn, director of brand management at CRP, "Hydraulic mounts are becoming more widespread because they are better at dampening vibrations and isolating the rest of the vehicle and its occupants. However, hydraulic mounts are vehicle specific and are not interchangeable with solid rubber or neoprene mounts. Installing the correct, OE specified hydraulic mount is critical to proper service. If used for the wrong application, the mount could lead to a comeback by not performing properly or failing prematurely."
Rein suspension parts include camber struts, control arms, sway bar links and tie rods, with vehicle coverage starting from 1985.
