According to Affinia, Raybestos ball joints are designed to match the individual OE applications for the best possible steering control, ride quality and service life. Advanced Technology synthetic bearing designs hold tighter alignment tolerances for longer tire life, and the permanently attached polyurethane dust boots provide clean, consistent, long-lasting performance, the company says.

Raybestos tie rod ends specifically match the ball and socket design for built-in strength and lasting durability, the company says. High strength steel forgings provide maximum stability, safety and service life, according to Affinia.

Raybestos sway bar links use performance-enhancing, low-friction designs and are cold forged for superior strength and stability. The full ball stud maximizes performance surface area, Affinia notes. The company adds that the parts come with the "best parts and labor guarantee in the industry," allowing technicians to install the products with "100 percent confidence."

Curing Shock, Strut and Suspension Noise

As vehicles age, eliminating noise is Job 1. But ‘noise’ may mean different things to you and your customers.

Shocks, struts and springs are the connection between sprung and un-sprung parts of the vehicle. The design is simple, with just a piston traveling in a cylinder full of oil to control the travel of the suspension and movement of the body during weight transfer. If the engineer gets it right, the valves in the piston and base of the shock or strut will be able to keep the tires in contact with the road and the body level under a wide variety of conditions. Unfortunately, the suspension can be damaged, and the shocks and struts will degrade. This can lead to handling issues and noise problems.

Why ordering off the menu can hurt your shop and customers.

Toe Angles and Ride Height 

Zero toe angle is present when both tires are parallel to the center thrustline.

High-End Ride Control Rehab

Electronically adjustable shocks and struts use conventional mono-tube and twin-tube oil-filled dampeners.

Toe Angles and Tie Rods

It is critical to remember that toe is not always zero or straight ahead.
