FAG Steering & Suspension, a genuine OE quality solution

The new steering and suspension range from FAG, provides independent workshops looking for premium quality parts in this vital sector an ideal solution. That is the view of Schaeffler Territory Manager, Mike Hansford, who says the unique features of the range, plus the fit and finish, ensure a best-in-class repair.


Mike comments, “As a globally recognised original equipment component and system manufacturer, quality is at the heart of Schaeffler’s philosophy, so naturally our steering and suspension range reflects this approach. Everyone who’s come into contact with the programme has been impressed by it and, as a safety critical part, that’s an important endorsement.” Mike adds, “In common with many sectors of the aftermarket, steering and suspension is an extremely competitive product group, so workshops have many options to choose from. However, the choice is much smaller at the genuine OE quality end of the market, where naturally the FAG range sits, and it is here that we’re seeking more of them to give our products a try, particularly as some lower quality components may require changing more frequently.”

Mike point out that poor quality parts reflect badly from a customer service perspective, can mean NCT test failure and could be potentially life-threatening. This makes it sensible to spend a more to ensure the repair is to the highest possible standard. FAG also offers the ideal solution for bodyshops or those working on newer vehicles, where maintaining OE levels of quality and reliability are a requirement.

Designed for all key applications in the Irish car parc, the range follows Schaeffler’s philosophy of providing installers with a complete repair solution, which means that every reference comes complete with all the ancillaries, nuts, bolts, washers and clips etc, so technicians can complete a safe and professional repair from the contents of just one box. 

Mike also points out, “Some of the other unique features of the range include nitride treated ball pins to maximise longevity and zinc flake coated exterior surfaces to resist corrosion. They are also protected by clear thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) boots with a micro-sealing lip design that adapts perfectly to the ball contour, which means they’re really tough and highly resistant to contamination and mechanical loading, and being clear technicians can see the quality and quantity of the grease we use.”
