The MonroeQuick-Strut premium replacement strut assemblies from Tenneco Inc. will grow once again through a significant coverage increase planned for early 2012. This expansion – comprising nearly 40 SKUs covering approximately 20 popular light truck, sport-utility vehicle and passenger car models – reflects record demand for the company’s timesaving premium, guaranteed, all-in-one strut replacement solution.
Tenneco’s Monroe Quick-Strut production capacity is also at an all-time high, with seven U.S.-based production lines now dedicated to the strut assembly category.
“We receive new requests for Quick-Strut coverage almost every day,” said Bill Dennie, director of ride control channel management, North American Aftermarket, Tenneco. “As the pioneer in this category, we have continued to lead other suppliers in every key area affecting installers and consumers, including the technologies available within each Quick-Strut unit, application coverage and the confidence that comes with a comprehensive quality and performance guarantee.”
In addition to expanding Quick-Strut coverage, Tenneco has added a new damping technology that enables installers to meet the unique ride control demands of today’s foreign nameplate vehicles. The Quick-Strut line now includes the Monroe brand’s revolutionary OESpectrum struts, which provide exceptional control without the unwanted noise, vibration and harshness commonly encountered in vehicles with lighter-weight suspensions and low-profile tires.
“By choosing Monroe Quick-Strut assemblies, shops can be certain that the strut’s construction and valving technology have been carefully tuned to meet the unique needs of each model. Relying on another supplier, who might offer only one technology across all makes and models, could lead to compromises in overall ride characteristics in some cases,” Dennie said.
