Raybestos, a member of the Affinia family of brands, has introduced new Raybestos brand Advanced Technology and Professional Grade control arms. According to Affinia, these are direct replacements of the OE part, offering reliable and accurate handling that withstands the demands of modern vehicles.
The company says the full line of Raybestos Advanced Technology and Professional Grade control arms includes top-selling part numbers; including those for problem applications. More than 550 SKUs have been added year to date; bringing the number of active SKUs to nearly 1,400, according to the company.
They are available for late-model light-truck, fleet and passenger cars. The company says the lightweight aluminum arms match the OE design for less unsprung weight, which minimizes stress on the other related components.
Raybestos Advanced Technology control arms have a protective coating to prevent corrosion and provide the longest possible service life, according to Affinia. When applicable, the company says the addition of an Advanced Technology ball joint provides additional benefits:
Low-friction ball joints are OE matched (or better) to optimize longevity and performance
Permanently attached polyurethane dust boot for lasting protection; prevents premature failure
Greaseable for extended service life
Purgeable dust boot eliminates contamination for consistent performance
Patented low-friction, synthetic bearing design… less friction reduces wear, which reduces end play
Raybestos Advanced Technology control arm products include: control arm, adjustable control arm, thrust arm and lateral link (all with ball joint where applicable).
Raybestos Professional Grade control arm products include: control arm, thrust arm, lateral link and track bar (all with ball joint where applicable).
Affinia adds that Raybestos brand Professional Grade chassis parts are backed by “The Industry’s Best Parts and Labor Guarantee,” for 24 months (or 24,000 miles) from the date of purchase. If the product fails within this period, it may be returned for a full refund, plus labor cost.
