Replacing control arms
Control arms are robust suspension components, as they are subject to strong forces. But they still wear down over time, which affects driveability and driving safety. That is why they should be checked regularly and replaced immediately if they are defective. We show you how it's done!
Checking rubber-to-metal components
Rubber-to-metal components are subject to high dynamic stresses and frequently harmful environmental impacts, such as heat, de-icing salt and ozone. Consequently, ZF Aftermarket recommends regular checks. Rubber-to-metal components are ideally tested during inspections as well as during brake repairs or tire changes.
If chassis components or steering parts are damaged, the driver needs to expect handling of their vehicle to be critical. Experts at ZF Aftermarket therefore advise workshops to inform their customers of how important regular inspections are. Many components can be affected.
Risk of defective parts
Possible damage to the steering system or the chassis can already be noticed when driving the vehicle. In case of doubt, a closer inspection is always advisable.
One in ten products sold worldwide is counterfeit. What many people do not know is that the installation of plagiarized products, counterfeits, and copies of steering and chassis components is dangerous.
