Optimum driving safety with Meyle shock absorbers

Worn tyres or a cracked windshield are easy to spot even with an untrained eye. However, wear eating away at the shock absorber often does not show until it is too late. This is why it is important that repair professionals raise car drivers’ awareness of the vital role these components play for overall car safety while relying on durable and high-quality products.

Passenger_Car_shock-absorbers_MEYLE.jpg-copy2Longer braking distances, poor road holding when cornering and limited performance of state-of-the-art driver assistance systems such as ABS, ESP or TCS are some of the major safety risks resulting from defective shock absorbers.

To ensure that these safety-critical components continue to perform reliably despite contamination, corrosion and bumpy road surfaces Hamburg manufacturer Wulf Gaertner Autoparts AG applies the most stringent standards to engineering, manufacturing and quality testing thereby guaranteeing excellent shock absorber durability.

For example, the longitudinally ground piston rods help reduce guide sleeve and seal wear significantly. Both the piston rod’s hard-chromated surface and the seal comply with the most rigorous quality requirements.

All components are manufactured to the highest accuracy of fit to ensure smooth and easy assembly. Wulf Gaertner Autoparts AG currently offers more than 400 premium-quality shock absorbers covering a wide range of models including many French, Italian and Asian makes. Applications include Audi, BMW, Citro├źn and Fiat, Ford, Mercedes Benz, Opel, and Peugeot, Renault, Saab, Seat, Volvo and VW.
