Tenneco also expanded its Monroe OESpectrum struts, adding four part numbers covering 2016 Chevrolet Cruze and 2013-2014 Hyundai Sante Fe applications.

“Shocks and struts work to keep a vehicle’s tires in contact with the road, helping the driver to maintain consistent handling and braking as well as limiting excessive vehicle body movement. Replacing worn struts helps to restore the vehicle to OE ride quality and performance as well as reduce premature wear of other suspension components,” said Adam Richardson, senior product manager, Tenneco North America Aftermarket. “By continuing to increase Monroe Quick-Strut coverage, we are providing our automotive service partners the opportunity to extend like-new ride quality and performance to more of their customers.”
