Tenneco Inc. has announced an expansion of its Monroe ride control product line for 2008, introducing more than 150 new part numbers. Tenneco has added more than 700 ride control SKUs over the past five years, demonstrating the companys commitment to industry-leading coverage of the North American passenger car population. The new Monroe part numbers, available in January 2008, include a variety of application-engineered Sensa-Trac shocks and struts for domestic and foreign nameplate vehicles, Monroe Reflex and Reflex Monotube shocks for light trucks, Monroe Quick-Strut assemblies, Strut-Mate strut mounting kits, and Max-Lift gas-charged lift supports. The new parts will be included in the 2008 Monroe Master Ride Control Catalog and available in the online catalog at www.monroe.com. Our ride control expansion over the past several years has reflected the increased diversification of the North American car parc, said Bill Dennie, director of ride control channel management, North American Aftermarket, Tenneco. Monroe offers a truly international product line that addresses the unique ride and handling demands of most vehicle nameplates and models. In addition to the premium Sensa-Trac line, Tenneco offers Monroe Reflex shock absorbers for light trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles. These applications have a higher center of gravity and thus can benefit from enhanced damping to reduce body roll and brake dive. The company also offers Monroe Reflex Monotube shocks for light truck models that were originally equipped with monotube-style shock absorbers. Tenneco Inc. is a US$4.7 billion manufacturing company with headquarters in Lake Forest, Illinois, and approximately 19,000 employees worldwide.
