Steer Into the Future with Delphi Technologies by Your Side

Sponsored by Delphi Technologies

Potholes can be extremely damaging to vehicles—especially in terms of steering and suspension. Sometimes they’re simply unavoidable.

If you notice issues with your vehicle after striking a pothole, the best thing the do is have an alignment check performed. Replacing affected parts can prevent the damage from spreading throughout the vehicle.

Your vehicle’s steering and suspension is what not only ensures a smooth ride, but also its handling and safety. With over 98% sales coverage and trusted by over 26 major global OEMs, Delphi Technologies’ 8,000+ steering and suspension products are intelligence in engineering at its finest.

Delivering premium parts at every turn

At Delphi Technologies, our reputation is built on delivering high quality parts.
• All our products and components must meet or exceed OE-specifications
• A dimensional analysis is performed on each part to locate potential design improvements
• Conduct material analyses to better source materials, develop lightweight solutions, and much more

Tested to endure the harshest conditions

All our components undergo rigorous testing and are built to latest in the toughest scenarios. These are just a few of the tests we perform:

• Extreme temperatures (-40°C – 120°C)
• Fatigue and crack detection
• Dimensional and material analysis
• 3-axis
• Salt spray (720 hours)

The future of steering and suspension in action

We’re proud to be an aftermarket supplier for Tesla steering and suspension components. One of the biggest challenges with hybrid and electric vehicles is the weight of the battery, which oftentimes adds a couple hundred pounds. This additional weight impacts vehicle handling and maneuverability.

To combat this, we use lightweight materials to help offset battery weight, resulting in a lighter chassis that ensures a safe and quiet ride. We not only met the OE standard for control arms and ball studs, but exceeded in strength, durability, and fatigue life while also accounting for Tesla’s multiple driving modes.
