Delphi Introduces a Steering and Suspension Line in North America
Delphi Article & Service Solutions has launched a line of nearly 2,000 steering and suspension parts for the North American market.
The new portfolio of steering and suspension parts includes control arms, tie rod ends, sway bar links, inner tie rods, ball joints, bushings, and rack and pinion bellow kits.
The company says the currently import-focused Article line offers nearly 2,000 SKUs. Applications include Acura, Honda, Audi, Volkswagen, Lexus, Toyota, Mercedes-Benz, Subaru and more. The line covers more than 241 million vehicles built from 1968 to 2016.
“Launching this new steering and suspension line is an exciting step for us as we continue to grow our business and focus on exceptional customer service,” says Kathy Jorge, vice president, North America, Delphi Article & Service Solutions. “As a global company with a deep OE heritage, we are proud to offer our rigorously tested and long-lasting steering parts to the North American market. We back every one of our parts with our reputation for quality.”
Delphi says its steering parts are tested to withstand temperatures below -40°C and over 120°C, and are also exposed to 720 hours of salt spray to protect them against corrosion. Other tests include tensile strength and fatigue testing, 100% crack detection, ultrasonic flaw detection, and extensive dimensional and material analysis. Delphi’s cataphoretic coating offers additional protection against corrosion.
Delphi plans to expand coverage and include more domestic applications through 2020. For more information, visit www.delphiautoparts.com.
