Tenneco Introduces Expanded Line of Shock Absorbers
Oct. 31, 2014—Tenneco has announced that its line of Monroe OESpectrum shock absorbers and struts has been expanded to cover virtually all domestic and foreign nameplate passenger vehicle models.
The OESpectrum line, which features the company’s next-generation, original equipment-based valving technology, was previously available only for foreign nameplate applications.
“Monroe OESpectrum shocks and struts have been an overwhelming success since their introduction four years ago, and service providers throughout North America have asked us to extend the benefits of this technology to all makes and models,” Bill Dennie, director of ride control channel management at Tenneco North America Aftermarket, said in a release. “OESpectrum units provide noticeably improved ride and handling characteristics as compared to conventional replacement shocks and struts, including our own Sensa-Trac® products.”
The next-generation ICV base valve in OESpectrum units is the same technology featured in every passenger vehicle mechanical shock and strut manufactured by Tenneco for the OE market. Tenneco is one of the world’s leading producers of mechanical shocks and struts, with nearly 90 million pieces supplied annually to global vehicle manufacturers and the replacement market. The company’s leading OE ride control customers include General Motors, Ford, Volkswagen Group, Renault and Daimler AG.
