Steering & Suspension
Staying on Track
The greatest challenge for modern, technologically complex commercial vehicles is the balance between performance, economy, and environmental compatibility. However, many of the roads which they are driven on are far from perfect. The chassis and steering are therefore often subjected to extreme loads which accordingly increases the quality requirements of wear parts.
For this reason, febi exclusively offers steering and suspension parts in tested, OE matching quality. As a result, the assortment available includes a wide range of steering and suspension components which contribute greatly to road safety.
With more than 2,300 steering and suspension parts, febi is one of the leading brands in the Independent Aftermarket (IAM) for the most important European brands (“BIG 7“).
» Steering Damper
Their task is to reduce vibrations in the steering system and ensure good directional stability. A defect in the steering damper usually means there is an oil leak in the piston rod seal. If there is no more oil in the damper, it can no longer dampen vibrations and must be replaced. febi obtains steering dampers from the renowned original equipment manufacturer, STABILUS.
» Power Steering Pump
These are hydraulic pumps and are driven by the motor to provide the hydraulic pressure for steering. Causes of failure are defects due to contaminated hydraulic fluid or air in the hydraulic system. Without the steering assistance, a truck cannot be steered or can only be steered with great difficulty. As a result, a defective power steering pump must always be replaced.
» Working Cylinder for Steering
These are hydraulic cylinders that can be used to control additional steering axles. If they leak, the hydraulic fluid can escape. In the worst case scenario, the hydraulic steering system can fail completely. A leak should therefore be repaired as soon as possible.
