The range extension comprises: 13 brake calipers; one new wheel cylinder; one brake disc; two parking brake cables; 18 brake pad sets for disc brakes; one brake shoe set; five tie rod axle joints; six ball joints; one control arm/trailing arm bush; one steering column; 22 shock absorbers; three steering gears; 12 track control arms; one shock absorber dust cover kit; 13 tie rod ends; one ball head gear shift linkage; 40 centre rod assemblies; 14 rod assemblies; two rod strut stabilisers; 11 brake hoses; two brake master cylinders; two clutch master cylinders and one brake caliper repair kit.

UK and Ireland marketing manager, Kevin Price said: “This extension comes just months after the second phase of TRW Aftermarket’s True Originals multimedia campaign was launched, using the messages of ‘speed, power and safety’ to highlight how the business is leading the market in terms of automotive safety, by offering premium quality shock absorbers.

“In most markets, including the UK, TRW differentiates itself from major competitors by offering twin packs in addition to single components; a move which is in direct response to test results which indicate stopping distances can be decreased by up to five percent when shocks are replaced in pairs.

“Our first to market approach allows us to offer new parts quickly ensuring that no matter how new the vehicle on the ramp is, no garage has to turn away business.”
