Oxygen Sensor Coverage Expanded

Delphi has expanded its original equipment oxygen sensor line for the independent aftermarket. Coverage is for 95% of the North American vehicle fleet. Delphi-produced O2 sensors are made on the same line as the original equipment parts, offering the same quality fit and function as the original equipment. These sensors also have a dry anti-seize compound evenly applied to the parts, which reduces the risk of element contamination.

New Hot Rod Springs

Bilstein has introduced a new coilover spring to complement its Hot Rod line of shocks. Tradition-al chroming processes expose the spring to harsh chemicals and electroplating, which can lead to poor performance and premature failure. Bilstein’s Street Rod springs are coated with the new PermaStar coating, which will not damage the spring or reduce spring life.

Featuring more than 400 new applications and 55 new torque-sequence diagrams, the handy pocket-size guide lists all specifications by manufacturer, engine size and model year.


Truck Tent

Especially designed for hunters, the Sportz III Camo Truck Tent keeps you high and dry and is designed to maximize interior space. New and improved for 2005, the Truck Tent features increased headroom, new lightweight nylon floor, and large ventilation windows.
