Tenneco has expanded its Monroe Quick-Strut line of premium replacement strut assemblies by adding 39 part numbers covering an additional 2.3 million vehicles in operation.
The new part numbers are engineered to restore like-new control, comfort and handling in 71 import and two domestic applications, according to the company.
Tenneco’s family of Monroe Quick-Strut assemblies comprises nearly 1,000 part numbers designed to provide automotive service professionals with all the components required for a complete strut replacement in a single unit. In 2018 alone, Tenneco has introduced 286 new parts to the line – just 10 fewer than the record 296 it introduced last year.
