Modular Suspension Struts and Shock Absorbers:
Innovative Products for the Aftermarket

Modular suspension struts and shock absorbers – as the name already implies – are modular in design. They are fabricated without weld joints and have high-quality zinc plating. This means they are very well protected against corrosion and have extremely long service lives.

Modular suspension struts and shock absorbers – as the name already implies – are modular in design. They are fabricated without weld joints and have high-quality zinc plating. This means they are very well protected against corrosion and have extremely long service lives.

With these modular suspension struts and shock absorbers, ZF Aftermarket has introduced a completely new kind of shock absorber for cars in the subcompact segment. Thanks to innovative production processes and corrosion protection, these products are top quality, reliable and long-lasting.

Like the technology, the development goal is just as new in that ZF initially designed the modular shock absorbers and suspension struts as innovative technology products specifically for the aftermarket; in volume production, they will be available only at a later date. In fact, these new products are a good example of the elevated status that the aftermarket enjoys and how customers in the spare parts market can benefit from the expertise of the entire ZF Group.

Innovative manufacturing process

At first glance – and apart from the missing paint – modular products look like conventional spare parts. However, if you look more closely, there are significant differences. The innovative suspension struts and shock absorbers are modular in design and fabricated without weld joints. ZF is thus introducing new and ground-breaking joining technologies in shock absorber design.

Advanced corrosion protection

Instead of anti-corrosion paint, the modular suspension strut and shock absorber are galvanized with a high-quality finish. In addition to effective corrosion protection, this finish gives the suspension struts and shock absorbers an unusual look that accentuates the very high quality of the products and instantly associates them with the manufacturer ZF.

Modular shock absorbers and suspension struts help preserve the environment

Our engineering team has developed new processes in suspension strut and shock absorber production that have noticeably reduced energy consumption; these products also help reduce CO2 emissions. The environment therefore also benefits from the ZF innovation. However, this intelligent production technology has another strategic advantage in that it allows a much faster response to market needs with production capacity at new locations.

Premiere on the aftermarket

The new modular products were initially developed only for the aftermarket. In 2014, the first steps were taken to produce them for the Ford Fiesta. Medium and long-term, other car models will be covered.
