DRiV, the aftermarket division of Southfield-based auto supplier Tenneco, says it has expanded its offerings from both its Walker Emissions Control and its Monroe Shocks and Struts brands.
Walker’s replacement catalytic converter and muffler product offerings are available for more than 40.3 million additional passenger vehicles. Monroe ride control products are available for 3.5 million additional models.
New offerings from Walker include 53 additional Walker CalCat converters, four new Walker Ultra converters, nine new Walker Quiet-Flow SS stainless-steel mufflers, and 20 new Walker resonator assembly and pipe part numbers.
Engineered to comply with specific CARB regulation requirements in California, Maine, and New York, Walker CalCat converters feature what DRiV calls “an exclusive catalytic technology that offers the right loading of precious metals, the proper catalyst material and design, and a high technology wash coat for enhanced oxygen storage capacity ensuring optimal conversion of harmful emission gases to help keep the MIL light off and maintain engine performance.”
EPA-compliant Walker Ultra converters, designed for OBD II vehicles (1996 and newer), are now available for 18 additional import applications, model years 2003 through 2017. Walker’s Quiet-Flow SS stainless-steel mufflers and assemblies are built for precision fit, form, and performance and offer the durability of a premium 409 stainless steel shell.
Also new to the Walker offering are resonator assembly and pipe part numbers for 51 and 38 additional applications, respectively, representing nearly 3.5 million registered vehicles.
Monroe’s new products include 25 new Monroe Quick-Strut® assembly part numbers, 20 of which are the first available within the aftermarket for their respective applications.
“We continue to aggressively expand the Monroe Quick-Strut offering to help service providers address emerging repair needs in the North American market,” says Joe Robinson, director of product management at DRiV. “Each of these new part numbers represents an opportunity for auto care businesses to establish new customer relationships based on a high-quality, guaranteed repair.”
Monroe also introduced two first-to-market OESpectrum premium replacement struts covering more than 1.3 million registered vehicles.
The new Monroe products are assembled in the company’s North American aftermarket manufacturing facility in Paragould, Ark.
