The UK’s leading distributor of car and LCV parts has added new lines of shock absorbers, coil springs and air suspension systems to its existing Starline range, to help ensure the garages it supports can cater for every vehicle that enters their workshops.
Starline’s range of shock absorbers use low-pressure nitrogen gas to provide enhanced comfort and noise reduction throughout the entire range. In addition, Starline coil springs are 100% compression-tested and are manufactured using only high-quality 55CrSi spring steel, with an anti-corrosion coating to provide the added benefit of a longer life.
The air suspension offering covers practically every requirement in the aftermarket, including air springs, struts and compressors. The development team also worked to identify specific applications where compressors come pre-assembled with valve blocks and fitting pipes to save overall fitting time, makeing installation easy and trouble free.
Developed using 20 years of knowledge and experience, the new suspension range is backed up with a three-year guarantee.
Colin Cottrell, marketing director at LKQ Euro Car Parts, commented: “As a general rule, LCVs and other vehicles that regularly carry heavy loads tend to need replacement suspension parts, shock absorbers and springs more often than the average passenger car.
“But with ‘staycations’ retaining their popularity following the pandemic, more and more people are now relying on their cars to cover long distances when they go away, with the weight of extra luggage on board. And that’s driving demand in the passenger car market, too.
“We’ve incorporated two decades of technical knowledge and experience into the Starline suspension range to ensure the garages we support can capitalise on these opportunities. Offering a choice of products from great brands helps garages empower their customers to make their own decisions when it comes to their vehicles, and is an important way to drive loyalty and trust.”
The Starline range was established in 1999 and today includes more than 35,000 products, covering more than 90% of spare parts for passenger vehicles.
