Twenty new Quick-Strut assemblies extend coverage to 7.1 million additional vehicles.



MONROE, Mich. – Tenneco has expanded coverage of its Monroe Quick-Strut assembly and OESpectrum shock absorber and strut product lines by a combined total of 9.2 million vehicles with the introduction of dozens of new part numbers.
